“What a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Came on this place by chance. Was not sure what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised and delighted. Food was delicious and a bit different. Staff were friendly and helpful. Reginaldo obviously takes great pride in his work. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We stumbled across this place by chance. A great place for tapas and the food was excellent. If you want to have wine but don't think you can finish the bottle there's no problem as you can take whatever is left with you! The staff were very friendly and pleasant and I highly recommend.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

This is a great place to eat.
We had Pork Belly, Chicken Livers, Prawns and the Beetroot Salad, all were cooked to perfection. The service was great. This is the second time in a year weve been here and will go again.

“Great place to grab a drink!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We stopped in here to enjoy a beer and a glass of wine. We enjoyed the ambiance and decor. It's a funky place with a decent drink list. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a drink, stop in here. :)
