Absolutely beautiful food, the beef rump was mouthwatering and the coddled egg just delicious. The staff were super-friendly and seemed genuinely attentive to your needs. I'd 100% again-a new welly favourite.

Waitress, by her own admission was having a very ditsy night so luckily it was a quiet one. Food fabulous and great company always adds to the experience. Our waitress tried suggesting we would need a lot more than what we ordered but we just went for a small plate each to begin and shared a large lamb dish with... More

Wonderful. Just wonderful. I live in London UK, and to have a restaurant like this, at this price would be a dream. A short main course menu, but my choice was just wonderful. Really attentive, friendly staff. It was a Wednesday, so not busy. I'll be back.

Our group of guys turned up on a Saturday night, and was told there would be a 30 minute wait, which was fine as we waited in the excellent bar and had some great drinks and cocktails. As they don't take reservations it might be a problem if you were on a tight schedule, but for us it was fine.... More

Visited at the start of a mini bar crawl, in search of cocktails-perfectly adequate, but not mind-blowing

Was very busy on Sunday night with a long wait for a table so we came back on Monday night and was very quiet. We had the 4 course chef's selection. Each course was fantastic and you got a really nice variety from the menu.

Found this restaurant at short notice after being let down by another restaurant. They were able to accommodate our party of four and gave us a lovely table, close to the fire. We decided to dine from the chefs choice menu and were blown away by the quality of the food and the amazing presentation. One of our party was... More

A fantastic haunt tucked away from Cuba Street - you wouldn't even know it was there. Great tapas meals and wines - although a little expensive.
