Really, really tasty food. Nice atmosphere and some very cool art (glass from a student of Chuhily) Lots of vegetables options and some really interesting mixtures of tastes - very different to "the usual places" Staff were frendly & helpful Will definitely go back

Really nice food and the portions are very big (american sized). The coctails are good. The pina colada was ok but their cheeky monkey drink was great. Expect a price range of about $70 per person. Very small tables though.
