Food was well presented and tasty but was expecting slightly more from our visit! The staff were very attentive which I find hard to come by nowadays! Drinks were prompt and couldn't fault the service. Food was adequate but nothing special!

Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices.
