“Little gem”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

So glad we came across this place. If you are looking for something a bit different, non pretentious and great food then go here. Prices seemed a little on the high side until the food arrived. Very generous portions bursting with flavour. The Chef is Jamaican. Service I thought was a little slow but its a small place so not much room for a lot of staff. We were in no rush so it was fine. Food is cooked fresh and its an open kitchen. Great lively atmosphere with chilled reggae music in the background.

“Chilled Restaurant, Great Food - Excellent Evening”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This review is a little late, visited last year. The place is nice with good chilled music. The food was delicious, we had three courses with wine. Scallops, chicken and curry goat was good, as were the desserts. The waitress seemed out of her depth but other than that it was a great evening.

“All good fun.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Good food, decent price, bit dark but generally a good atmosphere. The new chef was very good. Great name. There is a fantastic cocktail simply described as "the baby maker" which was a real winner.
