This is possibly the best restaurant on the V&A waterfront. It's worth a visit just to read the wine list-apparently it has the largest number of wines by the glass in the world! Food was succulent with excellent customer service. Will be coming back here...More

Had a great lunch here last week. We had the lamb chops and the lamb shank. The shank was out of this world- loved it! Service was smooth and friendly, and not intrusive at all.
