“Food nice, very busy & crammed venue”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

I have dined here for both breakfast & dinner. Both were equally delicious. The breakfast visits have always been in what feels like peak hour traffic, with the place packed & very noisy & you do feel like a sardine crammed into a corner etc. it's definitely where all the inner city hipsters & young well to do families visit. I thoroughly enjoyed the tapas menu for dinner.

“Great for tapas & friends”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Had a late lunch/early dinner here with drinks & tapas. A good variety of dishes to enjoy over a period of time while talking. The staff was great; attentive without being annoying & very friendly.

“Delicious Food & Great Staff”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

The food here is delicious, it looks so well presented also! Our waitress remembered what we each had to drink and would come offer another drink when she noticed we had finished, the food was cooked really welland arrived fast, the staff cared if we enjoyed the meal and were more professional and down to earth than most restaurants.

The only downfall this place has is their restrooms, they feel like public bathrooms, not the ones you would expect is such alovely restuarant so I didn;t want to use them more than once.

“two lunches and dinner”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

eaten here twice for lunch and once for dinner so far. salads are awesome coffee is good and service is quick helpful and friendly. get in early and bag yourselves a seat on the sidewalk in the sun to people watch. the only bad thing is the traffic on Darby street!
