Had a lovely meal here on Saturday evening. Our server introduced herself as Lianne and was absolutely lovely even though I don't think I saw her stop the entire time we were there! The restaurant was full and the staff were clearly busy but she was super friendly and took time to check in on us, take extra drinks orders and recommend food. Range of food (including vegan options) really good and the portions are incredibly filling. Booking online was simple and I would definitely recommend doing this on a Saturday evening. I got a confirmation email within a couple of hours as well as a reminder email. Had a great time and would definitely recommend.

I am a particularly discerning customer (translate as annoying) - hot chocolate fudge cake when otters are eating their main, as an example. This is a great little restaurant but would recommend it particularly on the strength of the service - from Liane especially - warm, welcoming, engaging and attentive.

We loved the cocktails and we were there during Happy Hour so indulged in the offers. They have lots of food options, the traditional: enchiladas, burritos etc and also more interesting choices. We loved the decor and the atmosphere. We were there on a Saturday night so was a hubbub of activity.
