We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here - attentive service, good choice of wine, and very imaginative, well prepared meals. But a vegetarian is presented with only one 'large plate' option - gnocchi; so if you're gluten intolerant you're really screwed! Maybe if we'd mentioned it...More

Tucked away among government office and apartment blocks, this relaxed, ‘hip’ wine bar has great staff and, most importantly, a fabulous kitchen providing high-quality fare.
