Five of us out for a meal, service great, friendly banter, nice wine selection, went for a big selection of tapas which was beautiful!! Ordered cheeseboards, which were poor given standards of the rest of our meal! Slithers of cheese, a few grapes and dull crackers ! Cream crackers ??? We asked for some chutney, none available , spoke to manager who was apologetic, chef happened by , who also apologised , we explained how everything was perfect but let down by the cheese boards ! A minor detail in the grand scheme of things but surely a simple thing to rectify? Let the chef put some more thought into selections and accompaniments? He obviously has great talents ! Won't stop us visiting again, nice staff, great food and wine!!

I will fess up straight away as I have been visiting this wine bar for more years than I would like to admit both at its current location and its former one.

The place is just wonderful and I frequently entertain business contacts here as well as socialising.

They have tapas which I rate as the best is the island and pizzas which are sublime but too large for a mortal such as me.

Special thanks must go to the beautiful "mein host" Georgie who adds a bit of auburn fire to the whole place in the nicest possible way - she is both attentive and fun.

This is an agreeable looking restaurant and It was not busy mid week when with work colleagues we went here for dinner. Regrettably I found my fillet had an unpleasant flavour/taste. One colleague had the fish option which looked good. Service was fine. I look forward to giving the restaurant another chance one day.

I have been here many a time and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food, especially the Tapas.
Even if you don't fancy having a sit down meal, if you ask nicely they will bring your Tapas to the bar to eat. The last time I went we had amazing tempura king prawns with seaweed salad which were cooked to perfection, then the most sublime mini burgers. Nothing is too much trouble. They have a good selection of wines at a very reasonable price. One of Jersey's gems....Add some sparkle to your life...... I would wholeheartedly recommend going there.

We had the Chrstmas menu and it was the best steak we had ever eaten. Amazing value and good atmosphere.
