Beautifully made steaks. One of the best steaks I've had. Friendly chef. Brilliant location. Don't order coffee as it's not good.

Top quality meat, well prepared, reasonable prices and a friendly and welcoming staff in a comfortable setting. Good enough for me to have returned several times. Always the same high standard: nice and unpretentious, like dining amongst friends

Super location just by the Canal. Ok food but nothing to write home about. All in all a very nice Place to sit and have a drink and a steak and watch the views and the people. Not the place to visit for culinary experiences.
