We went here because the Ethiopian place a few doors down was full. When we went in we were the only customers, which should have given us a sign. The menu looked quite tasty, the waiter seemed friendly, so we decided to give it a go...
After waiting for seemingly an eternity, my girlfriend asked if it was usual to wait this long for a meal, to which the waiter replied that it was because the banana fritters take so long. Ridiculous.
When the food arrived, it was decent enough, but not worth the money we paid for it. We didn't hang around for dessert, and as we were leaving another group had just arrived and we told them not to even bother.
Possibly one of the worst restaraunt experiences I've ever had.

It was our first time in a cuban restaurant. The decoration is nice. The cocktails are really good. The food even simple, was very tasty and well presented.
The staff was correct. So we enjoy a lot!

Promised very much and delivered very little. Great atmosphere, poor service and very poor food. The emphasis was very much on quantity rather than quality and in the end, I left about 90% of mine on the plate ( unheard of for me!). No concern expressed by the waiter and very little interaction at all. When I commented on the fact that my steak was seriously over cooked, he looked bemused and didn't seem to know what to do. I would most definately NOT recommend this restaurant

Tucked away a decent distance from the main tourist hot spots this restaurant has a very laid back atmosphere. The food is delicious, combining interesting flavours to deliver a great eating experience. Even the toilets are funky.
