Situated right next to Sky City, this is a great alternative to the usual "pub fare and drinks" type of establishment. There's a reasonable choice of boutique beers and the food (particularly the oysters and clams for starters) is very impressive. It's busy in the...More

Delicious food. Next to the sky tower. Good service. Heard dinner gets very crowded so lunch is a great option.

Opens early for breakfast - try the beignets with a coffee and is pretty much open all day; gets crowded from 5.30pm really when the local office workers drop by. A really good spot!
