The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was good, but the smoke ruined it for us. As we walked in we were hit with the smell of smoke. The imaginary separation between smoking and non-smoking section does not work at all. We ate and left.

I've eaten many times in the Cellar, but I was blown away by the quality and choice of many Mediterranean classics. I especially recommend the paella in squid ink.

Lively bar/restaurant that is always busy. Offers a wide selection of food and a decent wine list. Getting service can occasional be difficult when busy but the staff are ultra friendly, engaging and extremely helpful. Food is very high standard for such a casual place and price is good. Definitely worth a visit but smoking area can become very busy... More
