The place is still clean and tidy. All wooden floor creates its own noise issue but its bearable. The service was ordinary in that it was a midweek night out and far from a full house. We got our first round of drinks in a timely manner but had to wait a while for the second request for drinks. They... More

If you like American-style lunch/brunch places, this place is for you. The breakfast/brunch menu offers the types of things you'd see on an American menu.

A group of us went out for dessert and drinks, and it was a 10/10 experience! The desserts were awesome, and the service was absolutely outstanding!!! Brendan is a huge credit to the team; he was brilliant. The rest of your staff were awesome too - it was literally perfect service. We will be back, thanks guys :)

My experience in this restaurant has always been terrific, the staff always friendly and accommodating, the food consistently wonderful and tasty. However not really a place for a romantic dinner. It can become quite noisy with people talking constantly. It is very popular and always a good place to go!!
