Went here last week for a drink before going to the cinema. I have reviewed this place before and didn't really like the menu before. The bar area is so American. I have been to the states many times and love US bars and the atmosphere and in F&B's they really have got it off to a tee. The menu... More

Another great eating option after the cinema. Might have to wait for a table but worth it if you want this dining style. Good pasta dishes and love the burghers with chips. Bit noisy but that adds to the atmosphere.

I visited the restaurant with family for breakfast. It was a pleasant surprise as the service was fast and the serving staff very friendly, there were several children in the party and there was a wide choice on the menu.
