Enjoyed a delicious meal with a lovely atmosphere on a warm Saturday evening. My son and his girlfriend are vegan and with an extensive vegan menu we all enjoyed lovely food. Will definitely return.

Nice little bar with a good beer garden. It's located near the river, so it's a nice place to stop after a walk. The mojitos are fantastic.
