We only had drinks. A bottle of sparkling wine. But we really came to see the Jazz Trio. And they were very good. You can see that the three musicians are very tight and enjoying themselves immensely. This is apparently a regular gig, and I'm sure they are just doing it for the love of the music.

Centrally located, friendly staff, awesome tapas, and amazing pizza which includes a weekly specialty pizza that isn't on the menu. Oh ya and an amazing beer selection. Great place for a date or meeting friends

Best time to visit is when it's warm enough to sit outdoors. The patio is private and has a great atmosphere. Indoors is dark and crowded by comparison. Food is good with variations on your average soup and sandwich combos. Very popular at lunchtime with the office crowd.

The food is filling and tastes fantastic. Service is a bit slow but worth the wait. A little pricy but once again ok

I LOVE THE BUDDHA!! they have the best fattoush salad I have ever had, due to their delicious dressing and fried pita chips. The brie bomb is the perfect salty and sweet snack. The Caesars come dressed with olives and pickles which are a favourite of mine. The chick pea salad is busting with flavour and always a great addition... More

Nice atmosphere with friendly service. Pizza of the week had asparagus and back bacon and mozzarella cheese with peppers etc etc and was great. A local beer went down well with it.
