I love this place. The food, the presentation, the designer's decoration of the establishment, the jars of picked vegetable and seasoning around... Had some delicious cake and great cappuccino. Will go back for more delicious food. A must in the neighbourhood.

Went at peak lunch time during the week and got table for two with my friend. We had four salads each - that was all salads on the menu! Plus bread and a bottle of wine. Could scarcely eat it all..... Delicious food, good service

Sorry don't know, suggest just phone them up or drop them a note. We like it here and by London prices it isn't too outrageous. The flavours are interesting mixes and we have never been disappointed. If Theodoros reckons it... More
