I shouted my husband and 2 of my good friends to this restaurant. It is very cosy and the hostess is very nice. The food was tasty and lovely. I have visited this restaurant twice and would recommend this place to anyone.

From the street you would never know that at the top of the stairs you step back in time in this I guess eclectic restaurant. The ambience is great and the food delicious, service was a little slow but we didn't mind as we were enjoying the whole experience. We will go back again.

Didn't event get a seat, we were told "no seats , we are fully booked" said the lady with a fascinator as we walked in. In actual fact, I think she did us a favour. Strangest place I've ever seen. Scene out of twilight zone. The 50 year old DJ was classic

Went with a friend and had a really enjoyable night. The food was well prepared, tasty and well presented. It is not fine dining but it is a very delighful meal. Service was particularly good. Always consistent. Good value for money.

I only come here on special occasions but it never disappoints. , it's a great for the eyes as well as other senses. Had the grilled figs, caramelized leek tart, slow cooked lamb, veal medallions, and of course the licorice cheesecake. All divine. I think it's great value for the service, care of preparation and variety. A great night as... More

This is such a quirky, delicious place to eat! We absolutely loved the interior design, especially the creepy doll heads and cute teapots! Yummy food and great waitstaff as well.

Anything from having a drink at the bar,a light lunch to a big dinner and dessert. You can have a drink at the bar, while you wait for your table.

Came here last night for dinner. The decor is quirky and kitsch but that is as good as it gets. Ordered the lamb and chicken fillets. It was impossible to determine the quality as both were drowned in terrible overpowering sauce. Presentation was poor reflecting something that you might get in an average pub. Would not recommend this restaurant.
