“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2010

Wow! This place is incredible. From the outside it looks like an old building and on the inside a 1920's themed lounge and restaurant. The service is impeccable. The prices are a little high but the food is so good that it is worth the extra cost the food is made with love! The owner Edward was wonderful and very friendly. All in all we had a great night.

“Amazing, Delightful, Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2009

I loved this restaurant! Staff in full 1920's attire, a live "Big Band" playing smooth subtle jazz in the background. Even the toilets are a must-see! Excellent wine selection, food is devine. Even from the street you get the fantastic feeling of actually being in the 1920's with an original 1920's car parked outside and staff waiting at the door to greet you. Staff were fantastic with excellent knowledge of fine wines and delicious food. You even get a bib, sounds funny, but it really went with the theme! It wasn't cheap, but who cares when the food is 5 star and the restaurant is 5 star. I would definitely go back!

“Great Food, Rare Setting - worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2009

Out of the usual tourist path, this restaurant is truly unique and well worth a visit. Intimate hide-away with 1930's Prohibition theme decor and staff in period costumes - Wow factor from walking up to the front door (greeting by staff in 1920's attire), to the smallest detail - even the bathrooms are worth a visit! Thick crystal, velvet table clothes, Food and service were excellent, and live music on the main floor was great - we had after dinner drinks there. Oysters great - everything was very tasty - we all wanted to go back the next night!
