We stumbled across this place whilst walking near our hotel. We were not in the mood for a large dinner but was definitely tempted by their offerings. Food was great, service quite quick. Possibly a little overpriced but good quality so not a problem.

The food is great, the music is lively, the staff is very friendly and the clientele seems interesting. I'd recommend this place to anyone who likes live music, dancing and excellent food.

The best mouth watering, cooked to perfection steak, delicious juicy Gamba's; the cheesecake, the creme Brulee and the chocolate mousse completes it all. On top of it all friendly staff!!! On Fridays live music

Only local people can find this location. Seen many local regular drinking in the bar. I often drive through this street that's why I know. Ingredients are fresh, drink wine with some small dish is ideal.
