Decided to visit this place after a friend recommended it, and have to say it’s one of the best meals I’ve had in ages! Gorgeous decor and lighting (especially for a date). The service was lovely and made us feel welcome, we’ll definitely be returning.

Nice restaurant inside an old factory or warehouse or something like that. Quite hipster, the service is good and the decoration is nice. Quite informal but with class, to surprise a friend or for a casual date. I enjoyed the food and the service is...More

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was excellent but the food was substandard. Firstly, 2 of the main courses ( and I think there were only 7-8 in total ) were not available - this was at 7.30pm. Secondly, and more importantly the food...More

The food on the whole was superb, the crab starter and the chocolate cake dessert were very well made and just delicious, along with the steak tartare. Small issue was that the beef bourguignon was just too salty, even when paired with sides it was...More
