This is a great little bar in in Palmer Street but the furniture needs an upgrade asap. Every chair is either ripped &/or badly soiled. And it's really noticeable. It's a shame because it lets the place down. The service is great and the food is delicious. But you can't help but keep looking at what you're sitting on...

Didn't have the wines we requested from the menu. Excuse was it was a Monday and they hadn't replenished stocks. The wine by glass was also questionable re how long the bottle had been opened so we asked for a fresh bottle to be opened, which was done willingly. The worst thing about this place is how tired and worn the seating is. Gross stains on fabric seats, tears and general grubbiness was a turn off.

An establishment set out with good intentions but let down by poor execution. ie. Overcooked pasta, lumpy risotto and disappointing steak. Especially frustrating when these are basics which every kitchen should master.
The wait staff we're helpful and efficient, but ultimately the service experience was tainted by rude individual staff.

A real funky vibe the place but not really our scene. There's a fairly lively crowd congregates here and the night we went there was a DJ playing techno music, again not our taste. The place always seems popular when we pass by so we're obviously not their typical patrons.

A great selection of Tapas available at reasonable prices for the area. Steak bites, tempura fish and the meatballs were a favorite of the night. The potato wedges were great to start but after a few you could really taste the fat.

A good selection of bears on tapa and a great cocktai menu make this a good night out on Palmer St.
