A tremendous evening to celebrate the graduation of our daughter with her friends. Selected a wide range of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes and delighted by all of them; such fantastic flavours and textures. Organic wines were also a hit. Thank you so much for making this a joyous celebration.

It was my Birthday and first visit to the restaurant. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful and my son and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the visit. I’d definitely come back and hopefully soon!

Had a lovely meal. The dishes were full of flavours especially the vegetarian dishes. Our favourite is the grilled octopus. It was amazing.

A very interesting and enjoyable experience. Our waiter who was friendly and informative made us feel welcomed and relaxed. The food was a delight particularly the fish dishes.

The lamb tongue entry was mostly chickpeas. Several plates were too spicy, ie grey mullet ceviche. The quail was served with no side dishes, seemed plain. The vegetables were tasty, bassive serves.

Portions of food far too small for the prices charged. No food descriptions on the menu and when we asked waitress what something was she had to check with the kitchen (more than once). If the waiting staff are unsure if the menu, how do you expect customers to understand it. That said, the staff were very pleasant.

Wonderful place. But my salmon was over cooked and mediocre. Dessert was nice but nothing special.

A fantastic dinner, as always. We took our external examiners who we’re all from other cities but they were all very impressed by the wonderful food and service. Two diners were vegetarian and one coeliac but the varied menu and excellent staff advice meant that this caused no problems at all.

We ordered 3 starters and 2 main dishes between us. The cauliflower, beetroot and burrata cheese starters were all delicious. The octopus wasn’t well cooked - too chewy - and didnt taste too pleasant. The quail was undercooked for me but tasted good. The wine list is expensive. We chose the cheapest bottle and it was excellent, however.

Food was tasty and unusual - some really exciting combinations of flavours. Really interesting to have such a wide selection of small dishes, and it was great that the vegetarian had as much choice as the meat-eaters. Great service and advice from our waitress. We had a really enjoyable evening.

Octopus and mackerel excellent. Quail OK. Lamb's tongue interesting and better than good. Sauces very good. Anchovies excellent with lemon oil. Everything came far too quickly, however (kitchen quiet when we arrived). Puddings underwhelming - Frangipane oversweet and very average; chocolate pot OK but salt overwhelmed and spoilt the dish. Waitress excellent.

We have eaten there three times and the food is a revelation! Just one thing though, we ordered the wine by the glass and when it comes to the table there is no piece of mind that the wine ordered is the actual wine we get. I think the glass should be poured from the bottle at the table. I say that because its not 'house wine' but wine which is not cheap so I would like to see proof of what I'm ordering.
