Despite the fact, Gin is the house speciality I tried their whisky sour and also their Old Fashioned. They have great selections of bourbon and single malts.Their fish and chips is also quite good.

Largest assortment of gin and gin based drinks. Besides good food and nice atmosphere. The only complaint I have, reason I do not give it the 5 dots, is because bartenders in the bar are not nice, there service has a lot of opportunities.

Great location and extended gin tonics menu, offering an experience of different flavours and mixes. Food even when it’ s not ellaborate has great taste and it’s generous. Great option to go out casually with friends, family and peers.

Went for a light dinner last night and picked this place rather randomly as I was out walking. Due to dental work, had to find something not hot, and soft. Nachos it was (after a cooling period, and only could eat the soggy chips). The...nachos were actually quite good, but just a few tiny chunks of chicken. An obvious speciality was gin drinks. I had two - one with Tanqueray and one with Bombay Sapphire, I was on a mainly empty stomach. Two gin and tonics at home, with dinner, would make me think twice about driving. But after two drinks, I really didn't feel any effects. Hmmm... The food menu was as varied as the gin drink menu, and I'd certainly try the place again, if I were in the neighborhood, and try a different menu item, as the other reviews are fairly good.More

Went for a few drinks with friend. Most tables were reserved for well over 45 min beforw they gave one up and gave it to us! We ordered a burger, wings and cheese dice (dados de queso). They actually billed us for extra ketchup for...the burger! They initially brought half a table spoon worth of ketchup for a rather large burger and fries! It seems it is a place that majorly favora their frequent clients. Good overall but would not go back!!!More

Cozy bar with good music, great food and a large selection of gin tonics! We come at least once a month and we always have a great time! I highly recommend the calamari and the chaufa rice ( original from Peru). Also great place to...watch sports or just have a good timeMore
