“Good experience”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

The food was good quality and the portions were a good size. The general ambiance was fantastic and the staff were all really friendly. However it is a bit pricey.

“Great find”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We found this restaurant by chance having a wander through Canterbury. It is in an old cinema.Great surroundings. High up on the wall a projector is showing old silent movies.
The burger was great as was the veggie meze. The staff were very attentive. We will go back again.

“Good food, good value!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Been here a couple of times now and been pleased every time. The burgers are tasty and I had the charcuterie meat board which was delicious! Reasonably priced and decent portions too! My favourite Cantebury restaurants. Only downside is that they seem slightly understaffed so the waiters are not very attentive and we got up to pay both times as nobody came to clear our plates or asked if we would like the bill. Overall a very satisfying meal in a nice setting and not overpriced, could improve service though :)

“Mediocre”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We chose this venue as somewhere we hadn't visited before in Canterbury and from the reviews given by others on trip advisor. It certainly has a cool vibe and the staff seemed very friendly. The burgers were good but were let down by the soggiest chips I think any of us had had in a long time. Also our meals were mixed up with another table and when the food did arrive some of the dishes were not quite as ordered. Come 9.30 pm on this particular Saturday night, the tables were being cleared around us as each table was vacated in preparation for the DJ to start his music. Definitely a young persons venue.
