Nice place - fish was the best dish, free flow drinks
Great place to go for whatever reason you need 👍
Amazing food, attentive staff and amazing cocktails. A great place to be at for any occasion.
Great food and great service. Love the weekend brunch spread!
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.
It's our first visit to Tess and it live up to our expectations. Service, ambience and food served were good. We tried Pan Roasted Duroc d'Olives Pork (recommended by the waitress), Brown Clams and Citrus-glazed Spanish Octopus. The 3rd dish is quite special that you should give a try. Will be back for drinks and good food again soon.
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.
Second visit to Tess, not as great experience as the first visit due to service and knowledge of part-time crew on NY's eve... Food was good as we ordered our favorite dishes. Did not manage to try the NY menu.
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:)
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!
