I like the cosy design of this little restaurant serving western cuisine. I've tried their dessert from the signature Brownie served with vanilla ice cream, to the Chocolate Devil, and 1 Meter. These are nicer among all of the cakes selling there.

This restaurant is not on top of the list of trip advisor for KK for nothing; it offers bistro-like atmosphere, delicious food served like back home (the mashed potatoes... yummy) and good service in a cosy place. If you're tired a bit from the Asian spices, definitely pop in for some good burger, chicken kebab, but they also have Hungarian... More

Living in KK I regularly eat here and have yet to be disappointed. The food is more expensive than the alternatives nearby but is worth every Ringgit. The food is well cooked and freshly made in the kitchen from a wide ranging menu. The staff here are also excellent and provide probably the best service in KK. I particularly enjoy... More

Nice food and good prices make this spot perfect for anyone visiting kk and looking to try some tasty food. It's a little small so therefore maybe not suitable for large parties but the menu was interesting and varied, the staff well trained and the food delicious. I will certainly come again as I visit Kk regularly.

I like the variety of food they serve like the basic Western Cuisines but the wraps aren't that good due to the sauce and I don't really like the desserts because they are too sweet. It's VERY PRICY TOO!!!!!!!!!

Interesting place with an eclectic menu, mainly Mexican but hints of many other cuisines. Basic but amiable setting, in a convenient part of town. For mains we had a chilli chocolate beef stew (bizarre, but tasty) and delicious, if simple, chicken tortillas with sweet potato chips. A highlight was the array of pudding cakes; we had two different chocolate ones,... More

We had dinner at this cafe and absolutely loved it! We started with a shared platter which contained some great dips. All four of us agreed our main course was the best meal we had tasted in ages. The owner was very friendly and assisted us in making sure our shared meals were free of nuts (allergic to them) Our... More
