Six of us ate here last night and had such a good night - we all LOVED the food, loved the sharing style, atmosphere was brilliant and great views of the fountains. Will definitely go back soon.

Hello, I am not sure if kids are allowed, but you can call and ask. It depends of the age and the timing. I think an early diner is possible. Although I don t think they will be happy as there isn't any attraction for them.
