We visited for lunch today and had a mixture of tapas. All the tapas were delicious and fresh! We ordered dips, meatballs, zucchini fritters, calamari, fried potatoes. All good food with good service.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal from the new menu. Scrumptious risotto, superb fish of the day. Good range of wine by the glass. Very attentive customer service. Prices reasonable as an added bonus! Highly recommend.

We dined here on a Groupon voucher for breakfast. Ample breakfast offerings from the menu and able to cater to special dietary requirements with ease. The price of the voucher adequately matched the quality of the meals served.

Interesting place with bar in the name but really a cafe. Serving Greek style food, the Banquet was excellent. Great selection at starters, main and desert. If you want to try lots of items, its a great way to go. Greek coffee was good also.

The food at the urchin bar is always so lovely. My friends and I have been quite a few times for birthday functions or just dinner. It's nice to go somewhere a bit different and the urchin bar certainly has character and a nice charm.
