The place looks nice and the menu showed promise. Unfortunately it was only so so . Pretty empty too. On a positive note wine was excellent.

Reviewed January 27, 2013

We visited this restaurant with a group-buying site voucher and were amazed at the quality of the dishes and wine list. We had four items from the tapas menu (one of which we paid for separately) -- all very different, tasty and presented well. The dessert (frangipane tart) which we shared was light and delicious.

The wines were also great and included unusual varieties and blends. Many of the wines can be bought by the glass, which is a real bonus for this restaurant.

Customer service was excellent, fast and friendly. The person managing front of house also told us more about how the restaurant operates, with changing menus (normally every week or so) to ensure there's a lot of variety in the dishes. Prices were also very reasonable for the quality of what you get.

Would certainly come back here again, either for tapas or for a more conventional three-course meal.
