We had 4 small dishes & 1 main for sharing. Food is good, paired with a good selection of drinks. Lovely place to hang out. The crackling pork won my heart!

Was impressed by their friendly service and the delicious food which wasn't overly seasoned. We ordered several small plates and a medium to share between 2 people. We had the deep fried calamari, crispy pork belly, lamb short ribs, roasted vegetables (as the baked cauliflower wasn't available that day), and the NZ white clams. Our only grouse was that the lamb tasted rather gamey (more like mutton than lamb), and that there was some sand grains at the bottom of the bowl of clams, but other than that we loved that they used fresh ingredients and didn't season their dishes with a heavy hand. Will definitely be back to try other dishes and their drinks next time.

I was warmly greeted by a lady staff upon my arrival and offered me a tabke but I insisted on the bar since I was alone at the time. The place is beautiful though I was surprised how quiet it was given that it was a Saturday night. I love the seared Spanish octopus. Not much dessert selection though.

Although we were late, but the service crews was professional and good. Allowed us to change to the dining table, wide varieties of alcohols (except draft beer), their pork belly is really nice! Will definitely recommend it to friends:)

Busy place, relaxed atmosphere and music. Food OK, if a little disappointing; highly over priced for what it is. Mini burgers/ sliders are recommended but steep at $20. Would definitely go again but for drinks only.
