Great service and food. The big windows were open and it reminded me of a bar in New York. The food was delicious and came out quickly - we wee a large group of 17 and everyone was very happy with their choices and the service.

5* service! Food was absolutely beautiful, especially the prawns. To die for! Will definitely return and I'll be advising anyone to eat here. The cocktails are also scrumptious. Worth every penny spent! Thanks for a really enjoyable night.

Was the most disappointed view in my life. 1) We were annoyed by the waitress twice if we would like to order. So we already ordered through one and then the second appears. (Was not the biggest problem) 2) It is a real poor quantity of choice for vegetarians. 3) I paid for a small bowl of olives 6.95€(!!!) You... More

Went here with work colleagues for a bite to eat and few drinks. The place itself is pretty good but i found we were squeezed onto a table were they could have pushed another table together. I cannot fault the food its brilliant so overall its a decent place
