Quirky and comfy. The menu is quite extensive and the plates beautifully presented. In terms of taste it’s a bit hit and miss. The meatball/burger options are not my favourite and the pricing of main dishes has increased significantly,
What I do love about this place though is that the menu options and the restaurant decor get changed regularly so that it’s never stale.

I loved this place. From the stylish design, to the super friendly waiting staff to the creative and delicious food. Its one of those restaurants where you want to order almost everything from the menu, it sounds so good.

I started with the white asparagus soup, really outstanding, with an intense flavour and rich body of lemon and cream. The bead was also delicious.

For main I took the veal with artichokes, pine nuts, rocket and lemon. This needed a bit more seasoning but was a beautiful dish. The side order of honey roasted sweet potatoes were to die for.

Due to the large portions I couldn't manage a dessert, but they have some nice choices. Excellent quality wines and good coffee. A place to come back to. Highly recommended.

Underwhelmed. The scallops did not taste fresh, and were too tough. They add sugar to the olive oil mixture they serve with bread?! I have to question the judgment of a chef who would ruin a good olive oil with sugar at a time everyone is trying to stay away from added sugar.
