    Wonderful menu, wonderful food. Drinks are great too. The bench/chair was a bit too high for the table so was a bit uncomfortable sitting. Service was excellent though.

    Really enjoyed the flavourful food on offer. I would also much rather support a local business than give my money to a global chain. Never disappointed and reasonably priced.

    The food was varied and well cooked. The staff were friendly and provided good service. The menu was very overpriced and remember you have to bring your own alcohol for which expensive corkage is charged.

    The starters were amazing! Pretty cool drinks as well. It was extremely loud inside. I couldn’t eat my main dish as I didn’t like it. The cuisine meant to be Creole/Mauritian but the dish was made with spicy sausage which was peperoni?! You simply don’t cook pepperoni like this. This is why you cut it in extremely think slices onto the pizza, cause it becomes bitter and creates sicky feelings after a while. I told the waitress and she said that she’ll remove it from the receipt but to whomever she mentioned the simply said no and I had to pay it. I understand that it’s a personal/subjective taste BUT YOU DO NOT COOK WITH THE WOKE PEPPERONI TO ANY DISH. Not even Italians do! Main dishes are extremely small as well. So appetisers and main have the same size. Good size for a starter but too small for a main.

    We went for lunch after a graduation ceremony at the university and we arrived to find a congratulations sign on the table which was lovely. The staff were friendly, the food excellent (highly recommend the fish) and, all in all, fantastic value for money. Thank you!

    Delicious unusual food. Their cocktails are also fabulous - no need to bother taking your own wine. Prices are very reasonable. In all a lovely meal. It’s great fun sitting in a shack on off furniture - part of the experience.

    Food was fab - full of flavour with lots of layers. Spicy, without being too hot. Interesting dishes, and great veggie options. The starters in particular were outstanding. The chairs could be more comfortable, though, and the shabby chic look is a bit dated.

    Disappointed with the service, restaurant very busy with only 1/2 staff serving. Our starters arrived after the main course. And then came at different times. Had to remind waitress to bring drinks on 2 occasions, food was very delicious. Service was the issue in this occasion.

    Friendly service and food was very quick to arrive. Beautiful tasting food and very generous portions. Only two tables in on the Saturday night that we were in so it didn’t have much of an atmosphere. Would recommend and love to visit again in the future
