This is a superb restaurant. The staff were great, very friendly and very attentive. The food is exceptional. It’s as good if not better than anything I have had in top class restaurants in central London. I particularly recommend the beef steak with red wine...More

The ingredients were very fresh and excellent quality. I had the burger, asked for medium rare, sent it back once, still came out medium. Spicy salsa has little flavor. Else great job!!

Split the shrimp flatbread and the local Piccadillo’s (SP???). We also enjoyed the lovely refreshing sangria. Great food and wonderful service.
