Burgers tasted a bit like processed meat and the cocktails were very overpriced for the size of them. Nice place to go for a glass of wine after work though

Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our pre theatre 3 course meal. Not only was it great value but the food was so tasty and delicious. The service could not have been better and with Bird Gais within eyeshot we only had to stroll over to catch the show. We will definitely be back.

Service was very slow unfortunately, I got the impression you were a bit short handed on the night. The ladies bathroom was in a bad condition, very untidy :( Food & drink was very good and I would come back again assuming the service problems were not the norm

Absolutely beautiful meal and fantastic service. Would be nice if there was a choice of menus rather than just one menu inside and one out. We struggled with limited vegetarian options as there was only one choice.

Beautiful food, great service. Amazing pre-theatre venue. Only comment was the heat, restaurant was very warm, air conditioning didn't appear to be on. It would not prevent me from going again, all of my party had a great time.

We were a family of 6 having the pre theatre menu. Everyone absolutely loved the food, outstanding. The only thing I would comment on was there was not enough avocado in the avocado salad which I had for starters. Otherwise it was one of the best meals we've had in a very long time. The service was excellent also and that includes the booking as well. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend you guys.
