Looked really nice from outside. Coffee was OK. Staff seemed to think the place was so much more than it is. Real eyeopener on going upstairs to use toilets. Place was filthy. If I had seen stairs and upstairs lounge earlier there is no way...More

Good food and the tapas menu was really comprehensive. The cocktails were great too but the score here is really for the superb atmosphere. The food was a little on the pricey side but venue, decor and overall feeling of the place was first class.
