Smart and well-located, with some interesting appetisers that the main course failed to maintain. Not too bad but nothing special either, but high prices given the pub-style food.

Every thing, from their cocktails to their sushi are beyond delicious. The snail cigars starter is a must, they can make it a main meal! It's definitely the place to be

A modern busy restaurant but tables were well spaced to ensure privacy. Service was prompt food was very good, hot tasty and plentiful. There was also a sushi menu available. Good range of drinks on offer. Dessert menu was disappointing mostly ice cream.

Hi, we have dinner booked to celebrate a friend's birthday but just found out she's not a huge fan of seafood unfortunately. Is there alternatives on the menu? I can't find the menu online. Thanks
