“Fibrant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Been here now several times and thus far never disappointed.
Looking for a good steak its the place to be. Also the burgers and starters are worthwhile mentioning.
Staff very friendly.
restaurant has an open kitchen but no food smell at all.

For a quick bite for lunch I would say the place to be in this area

“modern stylish with a good buzz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

This place was very busy but with only a short wait they found us a table. The staff were very attentive Drinks included cocktails as well as wine and beer. There is a definite buzz with mellow background music and plenty of chatter. It is a modern light and airy restaurant but the customers were of all ages. The food was really well cooked, I had Swordfish for starter which was extremely tasty and an 'Argentina style' steak sandwich which again was very tasty. I would eat here again.
