Came across this restaurant by accident, just by seeing the name above the stairs and wasn't sure what to expect. We were not disappointed. Very friendly attentive staff. Great food and fantastic value for money.

Best drinks in the city by far, fast service and great staff. Two that stood out were Ben and Ellen who provided me with quick service and exceptional cocktails. I would definitely recommend to my colleagues and friends.
