Without a doubt the restaurant deserve all the hype and excellent reviews it deserved. As a party of 8, we booked a table for late night drinks and were not disappointed. Although the restaurant is small, it really plays into its advantage by making the service feel welcoming and personal. Wine list had great diversity and since we were only there for drinks, we ordered several starters to share. Upon arrival we immediately noticed that we made a huge mistake of not ordering a main as well since it was exquisite! Would definitely revisit in the coming months.

We ate here in October 13, outside in the alley, the food was well presented, but fell short on taste, we also found the portions were small compared to other restaurants - a bit end of season tiredness in the service..about 5/10 rating - small portions = higer than bill than comparable restaurants.

We ate mid week at about 8pm in October and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient and the open kitchen clean. My husband had fresh local fish and I had pasta and we both enjoyed our food very much. It was not over fancy - just good quality fresh food.

We came to this restaurant by accident but that was certainly a great accident. The atmosphere, the service and not to forget the music was simply amazing. We were given a history lecture by one of the waiters that was an extra highlight. Highly recommended

I was recommended to go here by a workmate. We were greeted by the owner, Rendy and he was terrific. I had the Sea Perch which was cooked whole. The meat flaked off beautifully and it was cooked perfectly.

It is small but has a wonderful atmosphere. You can see straight through to the kitchen which appeared very clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.
