A large and busy place with a happy vibe. The menu offers a lot to chose from also for veggies. Chilli con carne and mediterranean roasted vegetables were well-made with fresh quality ingredients and right seasoning. Good selection of alchohol. Wa sat upstairs on the indoor terrace and enjoyed it. The service was fast and efficient.

Had dinner and cocktails here with friends. Brilliant food and a really chilled atmosphere. Good selection of food and drink available. It's busy though so worth booking a table if possible.

This is a nice place to eat lunch. The decor is really interesting and there is a friendly atmosphere. There is a large selection on the menu and I was impressed with the vegetarian choices. I had the lentil burger, it was delicious! I would eat here again.
