We came here as a group of four for an evening meal. This bistro is a chic place with great food, but the service and ambience reminds me of Marmite - you'd either love it or hate it. We quite loved it and will be...More

I went to this place 3 years ago and had to wait one hour to be seated, and later received bad service, it was not a memorable dinner so i didnt write a review with a view to give it another chance in the future....More

We ate in this restaurant on a Friday night. Despite the fact that the food is not bad at all, the restaurant is extremely noisy and it is absolutely impossible to hold a conversation without screaming.This is certainly due to the fact that the owners...More

If you like truffle this is the place to go. Service excellent if not a little quick. I went with the day's specials (although my daughter tells me they have been the specials for more than a day!!) Swiss Cheese with truffle, bread and salad...More
