AMAZING tapas and drinks. Thanks to James, the British bartender for concocting some absolutely unique and fabulous drinks. Everything we ordered (prawns, tuna tartare, dry ribs, tokyo fries, etc.) was perfectly presented and tasted amazing. Cozy and fantastic place.

Super nice restaurant with Asian French inspired tapas. We had 2 small dishes per person and shared and it worked well! Place is very small so drop by early and ask for a table and they will text you when available. A true gem!

Hello, Yes we do have some vegan options as well as being able to modify some items into vegan versions. Also, whenever we have a non-meat/fish soup, it is dairy-free vegan. Hope this helps.
