It's been a while since I've been, alas. Service, food and atmosphere were nothing short of fantastic. Jim provided excellent advice on the menu and helped us through the wine list. I couldn't speak more highly of our evening. Bravo!

We went there only for a snack, and had pitas with dip as starters and then sone wagyu grilled potatoes with noisette butter and buttermilk, and red cabbage with parmesan, fig and apples. It was very tasty. Athmosphere was nice, service good, longdrinks nice!

Great service, awesome food and cozy interiors! The menu combination recommended to us even wowed the discerning foodie in us: duck confit in VSOP jelly, lamb shank mezze with Wagyu fat potatoes concluded with balsamic sorbet. Awesome!

Tucked away up an alley your eyes take a while to get used to the dimly lit place. Service was excellent but even the food was plentiful n tasty it lacked the wow factor.
