Lovely bar/restaurant with very friendly staff. I rated 4 stars only because my fish was a bit rare and I wasn't asked how I'd liked it cooked

We are a small, locally owned business offering high quality meals cooked with the best ingredients. A very intimate space to enjoy lunch or dinner, and now brunch on the weekends. Fresh fruit juices, mimosas & margaritas, premium coffee and great music make this a place you don't want to miss.
