Firstly I must say Ismael, the manager, is a true professional! From my initial booking (there were 30 of us) to the last person leaving, we were given the royal treatment. We had several birthdays to celebrate and the cakes were sublime. Our teenagers were...More

Great brunch with amazing food, the desserts especially are just divine. Great service with a nice but small selection. Abraham was very attentive to our table and kept the drinks flowing! Would 100% go again.

Use to be a quiet relaxing gem of a Brunch but they’ve lost all unique features. They over work their staff, only one ☝🏼bartender for the entire restaurant. Are you kidding me? You pay top end prices for ‘We will serve you when we’re ready!”...More
