Last night we just decided to visit the first place we came across, stopping in the marlin we ended up in this little traditional restaurant. The food was amazing, the service and staff were very polite and friendly, I seemed to be suffering from man...More

There are not a lot of choices in the immediate area but we were staying nearby and it was raining so we stopped in here. Everyone was welcoming, obviously the owner runs a tight ship as his presence was dominating. The food was good, not...More

Great food, service and atmosphere. The owner and staff were warm, friendly and authentic. A breath of fresh air from other somewhat presumptuous restaurants in London. The food and wine were delicious.
