We visited this restaurant with a group of friends after hearing that there is a lot of fun going on here. Unfortunately we were disappointed. Pretty much all of the appetizers we've ordered (dont even remember the names) were of poor quality and definitely not pleasant in eating to say the least.

Stopped by mid afternoon for a drink and ended up staying 3 hours! The food was brilliant, so tasty! Portions not to big but the idea is to get a few plates to share which we enjoyed working our way through. Lovely waiter on during the day. Very busy place at night we wanted to go back but couldnt get... More
