“Great evening ..... great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We had an outside table with a magnificent view. After delicious oysters we tucked into various tapas recommended by the manager, John. The fish gourlons and calamari was superlative while the rest was excellent. Finished off with the most decadent chocolate brownie ever. Great evening , but the food was so good that I admit I over-indulged. Ah well, I was on holiday. Very friendly service, especially the manager.

“great sushi- poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

the tapas type food here is ok although a little overpriced for what you get. the sushi however is absolutely great. Service varies from ok to non-existent. Nice location though, great spot for after work drinks and a light bite
