I am not a big fan of the “do it all, big restaurants”. I prefer small intimate restaurants with more focused menu to really highlight the chef’s talents, so I was hesitant when a member of our group chose this restaurant. It is huge. Three floors with loud live music, a piano player. The service was quick and efficient, although they constantly tried to oversell.

Our choice was seafood and we were not disappointed. Very fresh and reasonable portion, but typically of a “hipster” place, overpriced. The wine list was extensive and pricey as well.

DELICIOUS FOOD! It was a beautiful evening, so we sat outside on the patio. The service was good and the food was great. I had the shrimp flatbread and calamari appetizers. Would definitely eat here again!

The food is great. It was noisy as it was very crowded. Suggest making reservations. We went during the week and it was packed. Service was really good.

Booked the restaurant having read reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed, the food was excellent and service good. Extremely busy and very lively. If anything the service was a bit too rapid giving the impression they wanted to use the table as much as possible. Still well worth a visit.
