We had a fantastic experience in this quaint little restaurant. Upon entering the bar is incredibly cool and the decor is really chic. Images of legends from old movies adorn the walls. The food was delicious and the service quick with a very friendly waiter and waitress. The music was Motown and the vibe was top drawer. The only black... More

Requesting a table for one can be awkward but this place made me feel very welcomed. The atmosphere was great, with chilled out music and great 60s poster hanging around the room. Gives a feeling of being in a smooth jazz club. Food was lovely and the service fantastic. Recommend a visit.

Ate here as part of a group of five and while two of us really enjoyed our meal, the other three weren't really impressed at all. The restaurant is very stylish inside with a really cool French bistro feel to it. We were upstairs which was fine, but for anyone looking to book a table I would recommend asking for... More

I was embarrassed by how the host treated my 8-month pregnant friend here! We were offered 2 high stools at the bar for dinner, and when we asked for a table with seats due to her bad back and late stage of pregnancy, we got quite a sarcastic response to at least try out the stools! She was too polite... More

We had a lovely experience here! The decor was eclectic and cute! But....,try to sit on the first floor because it is far cuter then the 2nd floor. The service was very attentive, fun, informative and nice! The food excellent and innovative- I had snails then a goat cheese over salad greens and the slow cooked venison! All were so... More

We went here for lunch midweek, whilst enjoying a day off in the city. We had a fabulous time from start to finish. The service was warm, friendly and efficient. The lunch menu was perfect with a great range to choose from and both our meals were delicious. The presentation of the food was beautiful as is the presentation of... More

I could not fault this restaurant. It's a real gem with an abundance of character. Servers were attentive and excellent. Four of us attended for a business dinner on a busy Wednesday night. We all had the Surf and Turf for mains, cooked to perfection. For starters we had an Italian Platter between us and finished with a selection of... More
