The food was delicious and the ambiance was great. The place was really cute and the service was amazing. A little loud but I didn’t mind. I recommend the boar!

Thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. The atmosphere evokes French appeal with touches of blue, colourful ceiling medallions and a beautiful wine cooler. The food was flavourful and beautifully presented. Service was charming.
