“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Definitely a place to take your friends for a casual night out for good food, drinks and atmosphere. Our server was very knowledgeable of their menu which wasn't too overwhelming. I recommend ordering the tiger prawns and the meatballs. We will absolutely try the other items on the menu next time.

“Excellent tapa style restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Food was tasty, service was attentive. The restaurant is on the second floor and we initially walked past the restaurant, as the only signage was a billboard on the sidewalk
