We visited last Saturday night with a group of 8. The cocktails were amazing! I asked for one that was sour and not sweet and they more than accommodated with one that wasn't even on the list. I haven't received service this good in a long time. Even when cleaning our table during the evening and at the end of... More

This restaurant was chosen as it was close to where we stayed and we liked the look of the menu. My husband and I shared the lamb plate and it was the very best lamb dish I've ever had. The others at our table had the steak and the salmon and were also impressed. Meal was well priced for the... More

Dropped in on Saturday evening for quick meal. Place was booked out but given a table if we would finish by 7.20. Too easy. Despite a good crowd the service was fast and friendly with three small courses. The food was great and the wine was good too. Just what we needed.

Great food and drinks menu. A choice of different seating and staff were helpful and polite. You must save room for the Portuguese Tart!

We stopped in on Saturday night, just to enjoy a light meal and some wine. Great ambiance with an arrangement of different tables and chairs. Great spot to chill out and enjoy company along with some good food. Enjoyed our time here as well as the food. Yum.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. We had a bottle of Pinot Gris and a Mezze Platter for 2. There was plenty of food for both of us and it was delicious. We sat outside in comfy chairs. It was peaceful and relaxing and quite romantic.

For great live music, tasty tapas and cool cocktails you can't go wrong. The furniture provides a bit of an eccentric feel and it is nice and cozy.

This is a fine little restaurant/bar. A nice casual place to go after work with indoor and outdoor areas to relax in. Good choice of drinks and tasty small or large plates. Friendly staff and quality live music on occasions too

We visited early on a Saturday Night. Greeted by a big smile and great vibe. Lots of places to choose to get comfortable from a spot at a high table outside to a cosy old armchair in a corner. Food is casual, presented well and very tasty with generous well priced servings. Wine was $40 bucks a bottle for an... More
