First time at this local deli/bistro in Craighall Park. Pleasantly surprised at the level of service and menu range. We just had main courses and Dom Pedro's for dessert. Had also been recommended by a friend to try it out.

Came for an early dinner on a Monday. Menu is good. Service was good. We had deep fried squid head appetizer and I had a steak for the main which was delicious. It’s a small and well designed menu. Seemed to be a good neighbourhood...More
