Had a meal and drinks. Staff great and food was good. I visit London Trader Vics and it was on the same standard. Would recommend for a great night out.

Great food and cocktails, with fantastic service from Avinesh, who took care of our every need. The live band helped create a lively atmosphere. A great venue for a fun night out with friends.

Nice French Polynesian atmosphere and very good cocktails. Professional service, beautiful food, comfortable seating. A little bit on the pricey side.

Sorry people, not allowing us to come into the Carribean Bar in a Carribean dress (flowery shirt & loose shorts below knees) is just against your Carribean concept. Dont you think?
