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.

If you like cocktails this is the place to go. "The girl next door" was the best, very refreshing! Everything is thematic, the menu is very funny to read. The bartenders are very friendly and do their best for
you to feel the atmosphere.
The place is very small, so maybe you will have to wait for a table. But if you go early that will not be a problem at all.

Sought this bar & restaurant in the center out on our first evening after reviews on Trip advisor. Small and mysterious interior. Was packed out for dinner but we managed to get a table and ordered from the bar menu that is nice and quite extensive. Background music and great cozy place with chandeliers and intimate! Very cute!
Excellent cocktails and service from the staff was approachable and helpful.
Several cocktails later we were happy and content to walk back to our hotel for a good night sleep!

This place is truly fantastic and you are guaranteed a great night if you start off here. I was here with a friend of mine to have a few cocktails before a concert and we had such a great time. Cocktails are delicious and very creative and as a bonus you also get a complementary bottle of water when you order a drink. The bartenders are very social and charming as they usually are in these kind of establishments and as we were seated by the bar, due to all the tables being occupied, we could enjoy some chitchat with these fine gentlemen. Be aware that they get very busy and I've tried to visit this place again but they were then absolutely full so had to find somewhere else to go. So if you are lucky to find a spot inside then get ready cause you are in for a tipsy good time. FAB!

Was packed out for dinner but we managed to get a bar table/stools and ordered from the bar menu (just as nice and quite extensive) - several cocktails later we were happy and content to walk back to our hotel for a good nights sleep!
