We didn't order food, and our order were pretty straight forward on a very quiet day, so I cannot comment much on the service. The cocktails were yummy, and wonderful view over the boats coming in and out.

Stopped by for after work drinks. Great view, cocktails and service. The regular DJ played good background music which everyone seemed to enjoy. Staff appeared on the ball and the place was clean. Will be back.

In a place like the V&A waterfront this place should just not exist as it brings the quality of experience WAY down! We went there as we had free cocktail vouchers from the city sight seeing bus so we decided to try it out. Waited...More
