Cosy restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Excellent service from all the staff and the food was great quality and fresh. The four different meals ordered were lovely, steak was one of the best I've had. I can also recommend the calypso coffee

I was told I could have a... More

Staff are lovely, good location. Only a few minutes walk to centre of town/nightlife. Very reasonably priced but quality is very good.

Great atmosphere - very busy restaurant. Problem with starter, rectified immediately. Only downside was people from pub next door (I presume) coming in to dine with their half finished pints, etc. Will be back!
