A pleasant space to eat in. The food turned out be artistically arranged minimalist stuff, with three skinny carrots elegantly placed, though interesting flavours. No potato item - that would have been extra and it was dear enough already. I won't be going back.More

Nice fish Focus restaurant. Service was friendly but slow. Combinations where really good. Might return when in the area again. Puddings where a little basic and not really though out well . Starters and mains really good.

It's dog friendly in that you can walk your dog through the bistro to an outside seating area. You can't sit with your dog inside the bistro.
