Such an amazing find! Our first but certainly not last time to eat here. The food was delicious and we loved how the tapas were served on separate trays. My martini was spot on also. Overall, simply excellent!

Two of us came on a reservation, we were seated upstairs. The food was great. I struggle to understand how a half head of cauliflower is worth more than a steak, but that's the menu. We enjoyed the food, drinks and service was fantastic. Recommended.
