Nice ambience and very trendy. Food is nice but the tapas portions are quite small, hard to justify price. Service wasn't very smooth, hard to get someone to look after you and slow, but they were friendly.

All we wanted was a couple of cocktails at 9.30pm at night. Was told they were "closing" even though there must have been 60 people still in the restaurant? Elitist, pretentious and obviously not keen on customer service. Never going back.

Went here for drinks - they advertised that they still had two hours left of service but refused us service and asked us to leave. For drinks. Go to the Balcony instead.

Came here for dinner with a group of 7 people. We ordered the fig salad, sweet potato, mushroom, fennel salad, beef brisket, sirloin steak, pork belly and black rice with prawns. Everything was very tasty and we loved the salads in particular and the dishes...More
