Fantastic location, excellent service and food! Quite posh and pricey. We turned up in shorts and Birkenstocks and stood out but it was no problem. A very memorable evening, something I would expect to find in London.

We went for the dood and ended up not only having great and creative food but an awesome time at the lounge. I've been there many times for brunch, lunch, and dinner and both the ambience and staff always make me feel like home.

Worth visiting just to see this place. They also have great events, so check their FB page for special events and weekly events. The location is a little bit far from the main downtown area, so the bar area is not usually packed.More
