Busy and loud, in a really good way. Funky little bistro in a very bus area loaded with restaurants. This place is always full. Good food, pretty decent prices and very nice staff. Had a very nice lunch here, well worth the visit.

Stopped for a quick lunch after reading the excellent reviews about it. The positive reviews were all true - good service, food arrived quickly, nicely presented and tasted as good as it looked, menu is a bit quirky, maybe, but food was delicious.

Went there for a burger on a Monday morning. The place was quite full and we had to wait for about 15 minutes, but it worth the waiting time. The burger was delicious and the service good. Ideal for an informal get together with friends...More
