Wasn’t overly impressed, ate early and the only other guests arrived as we were leaving…probably better at night/evening…and weather wasn’t quite matching the beach-hutty vibe they’re going for…hard to achieve in a cellar. Needs more work/pricing is too high. Tried most of the tapas…liked the...More

An alternative, cool urban space for pre-dinner meet ups or nights out in town. Serving quality drinks and cocktails. CLIFF Executive Chef Martijn Kajuiter and Cliff Townhouse Head Chef Sean Smith have joined together to create a CLIFF take on the small plate concept. Urchin is a great choice for a quick bite at lunch or late night bite.
