Second time back to this restaurant and again it didn't disappoint. Had the chicken liver pate which was fresh and tasty. Lamb shank was cooked well and the sauce and potato mash was done really well. Portions are big so we normally share everything. Waiters this time seemed a bit flustered and the food came too fast. While we were... More

Well, what a wonderful meal. Great service from the friendly staff. We tried skewers based on the reviews and we're not disappointed. All elements of our meals were well executed. The meats were premium quality and treated with the respect they deserved. Sides and accompaniments were of the same high standard. Coming from Melbourne Australia, we are accustomed to good...

I have been eating quite a few times there. The food has always been very good with a very stable quality which is certainly the up for this place. One very bad thing, the up charge foe extra bread, and it really does not make any sense, just to make us believe that prices are that cheap that cannot afford... More

I visited there on the recommendation of a friend and was pleasantly impressed. Not the cheapest food, but well worth the extra cost.The cigar room is fantastic with a wonderful range of cigars and drinks to compliment. The owner ,Tristan is friendly and accommodating.Well done. I will be back as I have already proven.

Amazing food, as mentioned. I had the pan sear seabass with shrimp in beurre blanc sauce and it was delicious, though the service made me feel a little frustrated. The staff gathered and chat, paid absolutely no attention to the station with 3 tables of 5,3 and 4. No water was offered before/after taking order, when i asked for a... More

We went there for dinner, the place looked really nice, cosy, warm atmosphere, not noisy. We ordered risottos, seafood pasta and moussaka, all of the dishes were very good but the cherry on the cake(s) were the desserts : the chocolate fondant is unbelievable (though I'd suggest to put a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate) and the...

I have come here at least five times and was never disappointed. Skewers serves delicious mediterranean food, has extremely attentive staff and will prepare your order in no time. Both their tables as well as their bar stools are comfortable, the lighting of the place is nice and I never waited to get a table. With this excellent package also... More

The last few times I've come here the restaurant has been far from full and I assume it's the dated interiors, menu and service. Supposedly owned/run by an expat so I'd expect a step-up in quality across the board.

Very cosy restaurant with good vine. Try "File minion", it's the most delicious we've ever tasted. Romantic atmosphere.
