I have been at the establishment twice, and I would go again. The food is good, the service is good (except for them being a bit understaffed sometimes, as it gets quite packed) and the venue is good as well. The only thing that bothered us the one time was the loud live band - our booked table was extremely close to the band, making it impossible to hear each other - and this is a mingling restaurant for all ages, not really a party place. Great place to sit outside, if you can get a table that is!

The restaurant is informal and not very glamorous looking, but the food and service was excellent. I chose one of the tapas and a hot duck salad. The food was imaginative, well prepared and tasty. The service was quick and attentive. The prices were quite reasonable.

Stopped by due to the number of patrons sitting in the restaurant.The service was good, the band vibey...but the food (for what I was there for! )~~Over priced and not true to description. Disappointing. Skipped the main menu, the tapas menu on its own looked enticing! Had a flat bread that was rushed and pretty tasteless. Asked the waiter to read off the menu the description of what I was eating and see if the they "matched up." He could only apologise and mumbled something about the chef. The remainder of my dishes were ok, not outstanding.

Because of the excellent reviews we decided to visit... The food was average nothing special at all ... The biggest disappointment was our bill without my husband noticing our waitress added a extra bottle of wine to our bill.... Won't recommend
