Description: We love food, every second, every minute and every hour we think about food. Eating shouldn't be done only three times a day. We like to eat all day long. That is why our kitchen is open till late in the evening. In our kitchen we don't differentiate between starters and main courses. Just order what you like and if you want to eat more, you order another dish. Our kitchen combines the best of different international cuisines, using classic and avant-garde culinary techniques. Did we mention we love food? Hmmmm.... However we might love our drinks even more! The variety in drinks is so big, that nobody should stick to one drink in their life. At T&S we offer you a wide variety of spirits which all have their own story. We like to introduce you to new flavor combinations in our drinks and tell you the tale of the spirits which come together in your glass.

“Little Miss Troubles!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Little Miss Troubles was just the best cocktail. This place is small and quaint but with a great atmosphere, great music and a quirky menu. The staff were attentive and we had a lovely time here.

“Glad we made the effort!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

After reading the reviews on trip adviser thought it worth a go and do glad we did. Made an advance booking and they didn't a text reminder. Last minute we had to cancel due to a delayed tour we were on. Much later that evening we came across it and after explaining our earlier cancellation they were do happy to fit us in. Lovely atmosphere inside and out. Great cocktails and good bar food. Pork buns were gorgeous. Highly recommend.

“Top”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Must visit if you like good service, great cocktails and lovely food. Even if there isn't anything on the menu you like, ask the bartenders for suggestions as they are very good at what they do!

“An amazing place to eat and drink.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The staff in this place are astounding, the guy serving us was really friendly and helpful and never seemed to stop being happy to help and not in the fake way you expect waiters to be, it really was genuine. The food was beautiful and the drinks were fantastic, this place made our holiday.
