“Hidden gem!!!”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Finally visited this bar, wish it had been sooner...lovely live jazz band happening outside in the lovely cobble covered courtyard, not many patrons probably 4-5 patrons in total but the band was so good and so into their music they set the mood. The courtyard has rattan furniture and some fairy lights and even blankets to use at your disposal if you feel cold, you can also smoke out here if you like, really great place for a first date or a friendly catch up without overbearing music and can still have a conversation. Inside is lovely high ceilings an gorgeous black and white checked floor (would be perfect for dancing) alas they don'y have any dancing here. We ordered the duck pizza which was very very average, bland, hard, dry and well nothing fantastic, we also ordered the chicken livers pate and bread, a little salty but it was very nice with a flying dutchman and a hidden sin cocktail $16 ea. Overall a nice night, great place to meet up before heading out to dinner or onto another more vibrant club.

“one for the boys and the girls”
Reviewed 27 February 2011

I love this bar! It is a gorgeous space - great chairs for cuddling down into or a table that in a former life I'm pretty sure was a door in my Grandma's house, great for leaning on! A new addition are the tapas! SO GOOD! They change all the time cos whatever takes the chef's fancy at the market that morning is what you get. Well I hope the chef keeps finding chocolate cos the dessert was AMAZING - I was meant to share it with friends but they couldn't wrestle the spoon outta my hand!
