This tiny place is still producing excellent food. Make sure you get your wine from Offy across the street as they have no license. Also plenty of cash as it's not cheap and they don't take cards. That said food is still wonderful great balance...More

Unpretentious quirky venue with delicious dishes. The food was as fresh as you'll ever get. Had the seafood meze for starters. Great mix of mouth watering nibbles. Obviously had to get the famous oysters to go with it. Had them in a tempura guiness batter....More

Hi, It's about £40 per head there was 4 of us it's not bad price wise and the food is gorgeous. Hope this helps and remember you need to take your own alcohol as they do not sell it but there is an off licence opposite.
