    The food and cocktails were outstanding. The bar staff and service staff were enthusiastic, recommendations were perfect, and cocktails were outstanding. Hats off to the chef for providing such wonderful food. It was so tasty and when choosing a few different dishes, portion sizes were great for sharing. All staff made us feel at home and like part of the furniture. Can't wait to go again. Thank you

    The staff at the restaurant were great. Very friendly, polite and efficient. The cocktail I had was lovely. I’d def recommend their Pornstar Martinis. The food is delicious. We shared a variety of 10 dishes. I couldn’t complain about any. It would have been nice to have some bread with the dishes and I would have liked to bigger portions. This is a great place which has a great atmosphere. I can highly recommend.

    The food was phenomenal, we destroyed the food that was put in front of us. Even had to ask for more sourdough bread to mop up the sauce….especially the red wine & honey that came with the chorizo

    Service was excellent, staff were generally awesome and I hate to be negative on a few dish’s as the beef and mash was delicious, the chocolate parve was great, sourdough bread was okay but overpriced. The prawns were overdone but the sauce was not bad. The duck was very average, small portion and overpriced. Chorizo and sauce was okay good for dipping. Overall average experience as few of the tapas let down the meal and it was a touch overpriced compared to other tapas restaurants we’ve visited. However I think this could be an excellent restaurant with a bit of refining.
