“Great Tapas”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Upstairs is great for tapas and drinks with friends. The tapas menu is great and affordable. The drinks are always good, and the service usually friendly. My only wish is that they required people to take a bath before coming in. It draws a large "gutter" crowd. It can smell pretty unpleasant at time... which makes me get up and leave.

“Tasty steak”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

and friendly service. I wish they hadn't allowed smoking though. So best to go when it's quiet, if you wish to eat. When there's a band playing, well then all's up for grabs!

“Goat Cheese Croquettes!”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Three words: Goat Cheese Croquettes. Seriously life changing.

What is better than goat cheese croquettes drizzled with a warm honey sauce and carmelized onions? Exactly. Nothing.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I want more croquettes for that price!

Paired up with some wine and some good tunes in the upstairs bar and you've got yourself a great night out!
