Food combinations great. Tables small very inner city, music played too loud needs to be turned down a bit. Staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoy this place, they don't open the door before 6pm.

This was my second visit here and the food was so consistently sensational! Every bite perfectly balanced in flavour and cooked to perfection. If you don't have dessert you're missing out - it's to die for. The welcome and service are excellent. It has a...More
