First time the food was very good, however..
Ordered prawn salad which was quite disgusting, prawns and the cheapest lettuce available, unripe advocado, mixed with a very heavy thick cocktail sauce. Yuk.

Main course of chicken and bacon salad was chicken grilled with bacon thrown on some out of date lettuce with again advocado that was rock hard. A seriously lack of creativity.

Main course of salmon for my wife was pan fried salmon, any idiot could cook it. Roasted vegetables were a disappointment.

Shame, looks like the chef has gone for cheap and quick.

We booked this restaurant having never been here before, for Christmas Day. I had read good reviews and a neighbour had told me the food was good but we were apprehensive to go for such a big meal as Christmas. We couldn't have been more wrong - the restaurant inside is nothing like the exterior. It is clean, modern, a great bar, lovely exposed brick wall and just a clean fresh feel. The staff are incredibly polite and it was great service. The chef came out to greet us too and brought out some extra treats for us and drinks at the end of the meal.

The food was good - we didn't eat the traditional Christmas meal but went for their Italian food and we were really impressed. My father went as far as to say the steak was 'one of the best he'd eaten'. I had lobster tagliatelle which was buttery, garlicky and delicious and the desserts were light and tasty with excellent coffee.

This is a great new addition to eating out in Brockley - you wouldn't feel like you'd need to go into central London for a good meal and was great value for money. The Christmas meal was £49.95 for 5 courses and a glass of prosecco. We will definitely be going back!
