This is possibly the best restaurant on the V&A waterfront. It's worth a visit just to read the wine list-apparently it has the largest number of wines by the glass in the world! Food was succulent with excellent customer service. Will be coming back here...More

We were with a large group and unfortunately we had problems with some of the food order and the wine. Service was also very slow. We were disappointed.
