“Just OK”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

This place holds a special place for me because I had a first date with a special someone there. Any attempt to go back and enjoy drinks or food has proven to be disappointing. The cocktails seem to lack the right measure of ingredients. And the food is oily. I do think however it's okay for a quick coffee meeting, and if you like to hang out in front of a bar while watching a game on the bug screen, it will be great.
