Good location and good food is served. It's a good location to lunch with friends or business colleagues. Pleasant staff with smiling faces.

A really nice find on Tedder Avenue. A nice looking place with a nice atmosphere. Staff that served us were nice although lunch during midweek was quiet. Food was excellent, large portions.

i went to this restaurant on a Sunday night. we were told a la carte menu wasn't available, but we could order tapas which was fine. they had live music and the bar was quite full. i really like the atmosphere and you can tell there has been lots of renovation done, nice set up and ambience. BUT absolutely terrible service or should i say no service at all. we ordered drinks and told the staff member we will order some food to share a bit later. after drinks came nobody attended us. not once. other tables were neglected as well. i saw the waitress constantly being in that area yet not doing anything. a table next to us had empty plates they were finished a looong time ago but nobody bothered clearing the table. staff was walking past us in circles but never paid attention. no manager or owner in sight. bar is full of local drunks that to be honest were quite embarrassing to watch. we never got to order any food and if we left and didn't pay for our drinks nobody would have noticed. it took me half hour to get a waiter that brought us the bill, i literally had to yell out to get him. i know you can give me a few excuses as to why this happened, however i am a restaurant owner myself and know exactly how to run this type of business.if i saw the staff running around desperately doing their job it would be a different story. what is the point having waiters if they do nothing? the brief moments where we actually got to talk to staff they were friendly, but they are not trained properly at all and its only the fault of the person in charge not their. if you only want to cater for drunk locals (which actually makes the place look pretty tacky) then just turn it into a self service bar. it just seemed like we crashed a private binge drinking dance party without an invite. anyone that likes quality will not come back to this restaurant and judging by other reviews im not the only one. and im not a fussy customer that needs to be smothered with chit chats, i just want prompt attentive service and your restaurant has none.

We came in for breakfast and after standing at the door for approximately 5 minutes we ended up walking in and seating ourselves. The place was probably half full with a few waitresses working who didn't notice us. At this stage we were sitting in a place not visible from the till so we went and flagged a waitress down who bought over the menus. We looked at these , decided what to order, then waited. And waited, and waited some more. No offer of coffee or a can I take your order. The waitresses would walk past us and ignore us, even though I had called out on two occasions. We got up and left to the place directly diagonal from Tedder. Fast and fantastic service so I'll be writing them a fantastic review. Funnily enough I saw another couple walk in and sit where we were originally and they left in the time we were eating our meal at the new place.I'd hazard a guess and say it was because they were ignored too.. Not good enough.. Hire more staff for your busier days!
