Been here many times, sometimes its difficult to get a seat as it is so popular. So far have never been dissapointed as the food has interesting combinations and the pizza’s are tasty. Has a great relaxed atmosphere too.

Food here is amazing, however, you cant book a table and when you walk in - the service is not overwhelmingly helpful. Most people like to know that their dinner plans are secure before making their way to a restaurant. Such a shame, some small...More

Have been here many times at different times of day and always enjoyed the tapas-type food, which is particularly good for vegetarians. Downside is that it can be very noisy and the service is often slow. Still a good meeting place and atmosphere to suit...More
