Lovely interior, nice ambience and friendly, attentive staff.

Great choice of wine/beers and cocktails. Menu is varied and there is something for everyone although not your typical Bistro expected menu. The burger was tasty and linguine delicious. The honey panna cotta with honeycomb was just the best.

We would definitely return but perhaps in the evening.

We went in a couple of weeks ago for cocktails which were disappointing. We were greeted and seated everything seemed great, I ordered an old fashioned which was nice however they had ran out of pornstar martini which we came to the conclusion they were pre mixed. Because we couldn’t get a pornstar martini they suggested their own cocktail the NB75. I can’t remember the contents however the glass rim was supposed to be coated with sugar ours wasn’t it it was coated with SALT which was disgusting. We got someone’s attention and explained the issue and they replaced the cocktail with no apology. After our first cocktail we struggled to get the staffs attention which I can only base on the fact we were only drinking not eating as everyone who was eating were getting plenty attention including the couple beside us or it was to do with the salt carry on. Who ever made our cocktail made a mistake which is fair it happens but to ignore us when we actually wanted to stay and try the other cocktails was bang out of order we sat for almost 10 minutes with empty glasses and during that time three members of staff attended the couple right beside us.

I didn’t have food so my rating is based on the cocktails and the customer service. Also it’s the first time we have had a cosmopolitan served in a tumbler glass.

I felt the staff weren’t interested after we sent our salty drink back. No apology about the drink. We had to stop a member of staff to order a second drink and also stop them again to pay the bill however we perhaps should’ve left without paying to see if the staff would chase after us and acknowledge the fact we existed.

Has potential but based on this visit I would not return.
