This is a really nice restaurant for a date. The food is very tasty and it's nice to have lots of little dishes to choose from and share. Staff were efficient and there was a lovely atmosphere.

Came here one evening while in Angel as it seemed to be popular (probably because it has outdoor space as it turned out it was completely empty inside). We stopped in for a snack. Ordered the mixed cold meats, which were horrific! In the many...More
