I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at Urbanologi. It was a business evening with live musicians and a full course of tapas style portions. Loved the food and having the opportunity to try a wide variety of dishes. Service was good and recommended.

Stopped in here for lunch with our tour group of about 30. Hands down people loved it. The industrial feel adds to the modern décor. They fed us about 15 different dishes (each one for about 3 people). Amazing variety and tastes. Excellent customer service....More
