Lovely setting, great staff, buzzy atmosphere and good cocktails but poor food. Menu trying very hard but nothing complimented the other on the plate of my main course. I had the cod and left most of it on my plate. Pity as it would put me off coming back.

What an enjoyable evening added to by the friendly welcome on entering and continued by Mark at our table. We were having an Italian evening with Campari spritzer & Montepulciano. The beautiful sunny evening added to the enjoyment. Great food served with a smile.

Never tasted food as good in my life! Every plate was better than the last. The cocktails are made to perfection. Nice and strong but no loss of taste. After dinner we sat on the deck chairs by the water. The service was pretty bad from then on so we got the bill and left. Overall a wonderful restaurant and will definitely be back.

Great location, nice place, good food. Guys salt & pepper should always be at the table. Service maybe a bit to ignorant especially when we asked for bread for the table, it almost felt like a big deal .

Nice place, easier found through Opentable app than through google maps.
We’ve been offered to have a drink outside first, and then were brought inside to dine.
Starters - crab starter (5/5) , Burrata dish (4/5) - it was a little oily, which made the dish quite fat.
Mains - grilled fillet of cod with mussels (4/5), and steak (4/5) - both dishes very nice, good flavours , meet & fish both cooked to perfection. Steak comes with potatoes, and fish doesn’t have much on the side, so you might want to take something additional.
Dessert - chocolate tart (5/5) and peach with merengue (5/5) - amazing deserts, very tasty and great combination of different flavours.
Would highly recommend!

Beautiful location, good music.

Food wasn't great, the bread was burnt and the smash avocado looked old. It could have been only a bad morning for them.

Definitely will give it another chance.

We've tried a number of cocktails which were all excellent, got a recommendation for a starter from staff, which was also very very good, but what truly put the entire meal over the top, was the dessert. The incredible chocolate tart with hazelnut ice cream and the peaches and marangue.. unbelievably delicious!

I didn’t enjoy the food, the quality wasn’t great and some of the dishes didn’t taste fresh and seemed like were from the day before. In hindsight I should have flagged this to the waiter. I didn’t eat that much, but I actually felt quite ill after eating the seafood dish. I like the setting and there is a nice vibe, but I don’t rate the food
