The restaurant has a pop art feel with walls covered with grafitties. Food is excellent and located in one of the most pitoresque streets in Pangim

The restaurant characterises all that was good and lovingly retained with honesty. Great food especially the idea of mixed pasta...wife loved it. Food is decently priced and very well done. Brilliant service (noticed only one waiter...I mean how could he)!

The toilets were very... More

Stopped there for lunch. The man in charge is very nice. Good and efficient service. Good was just what I needed. Only turndown was a couple having cigarette after cigarette in the corner of the dining room. Not very 2016.
