The dining room is warm and inviting with exposed brick walls and trendy ceiling lighting which set the tone for quick pre/post shopping bites or a more formal evening meal. A vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere is guaranteed whether you dine with us or just soak up the ambience with a casual drink at the bar.

“Spizzico meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

First time in this restaurant. Met with a group of 8 friends for a birthday celebration. This was a Tuesday night so wasn't expecting a packed restaurant. Pleasantly surprised, a busy restaurant and the food was very good. A good choice of wine and beers and the the service was very good. I can't comment on the price as our host provided the evening but overall very good..

“Not again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

I went here with my daughter. The food was adequate and reasonably priced. The service was ok but not great, staff seemed more interested in their own discussions than their customers - or at least the non-regulars who they seemed to chat to happily at the expense of others.
However the place was dirty. The food was served so quickly there was no chance for a nice relaxed evening, maybe because we were there early in the evening but overall not a great experience and wont be going back.

“Good all rounder!”

Good food (my calves liver was cooked to perfection). Reasonably priced, plus the service and food better than other similar locations. We will be back!

“Over priced and worth avoiding!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Went here with a group of friends and it was really a big let down. Food was poor and presentation and the quality of food was more like s cheap cafe than a so called nice restaurant.the pate was cheap and nasty and the steak was tough as old boots.the service was also terrible and our plates kept being cleared even while people where still eating. We try to support local business but this place has gone down hill big style.

“OK but nothing really to get excited about”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

With limited options in Barnet went with a group of friends. Food was adequate and fairly basic. Had to wait a while for service which seemed to be excessive as they were no that busy at the time.
