All of our dishes are prepared on site to order and we pride ourselves on offering deliciously different dishes created with the highest quality products served in a relaxed environment. Please be aware that, due to our size, we have specifically designed our seating for smaller groups and couples and are unable to cater for larger groups. We stop serving food 30 minutes before closing time and during busy periods dishes may sell out. We are unable to take reservations.
