A great place for an evening out with friends when you want good food in a cheerful place but not too pricey or too stuffy. Well situated opposite King's Cross station but nice inside. Delicious but relatively straightforward food - both individual plates and for sharing.

All the food was cooked fresh to order, presented nicely, we ate with a 2 course voucher with a glass of Fizz and topped it up with a glass of wine all of which was very enjoyable.

The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

I never write bad reviews but this is an exception. Booked this restaurant for our team event and found it embarrassing. The young waiter didn't know what he was doing, didn't seem to know what was available on the menu, kept coming over double checking instead of just listening in the first place, was totally distracted. We waited over and HOUR for bread to be put on the table to be told, from I guess the supervisor that it was their 'rush hour'! Food finally came, can't really fault the food but the ambience went out the window as we were so very hungry. Had to keep asking for cutlery because between courses they took them away, just replace them?? No sense of urgency, not professional in anyway, it felt like a chore to have them to serve us.
Unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant.

Overall: Not the best place for a bottomless brunch, probably better for evening drinks as they had music and central location.

Food: Tasty and cheap. However, small portion sizes and the food was just kinda thrown at us.

Drinks: Paid £15 for 'Unlimited Prosecco'. Not once did anyone come to fill up or drinks, the staff avoided our table and we had to call them over to refill which made it not an enjoyable experience.

Service: Not great due to asking for my 'bottomless' drink to be refilled. It was barely filled 4 times in 2 hours and then we were told we couldn't have any more drinks. The 12.5% service charge is a joke to be honest.

Ambience: Music was too loud to hear the person across from me talk and the staff were all busy chatting away at the bar making it hard to get service to our table.

The deal of 2/3 courses plus a glass of bubbles is good value. But the service was quite slow and also none of the mains on the set menu come with any sides. No one flagged this to us when ordering so the fish dish and chicken dish we ordered just came on their own.

Superb food. Excellent value: 3 courses and fizz for £21.50. Friendly, professional, helpful staff. Amazing steak tartar and seafood linguine. Generous portions and quality ingredients. Delicious desserts. The manager is brilliant. Probably the reason why the service and food is so good is because this chap is so passionate about the place. He really wanted every customer to be happy.
I recommend a visit.

Really nice set up and surprisingly tranquil given the location on Euston Road. Disappointing veggie options though my meat eating friend really enjoyed hers.
Will try again in the hopes they extend the vegetarian options a bit further.

This was quite a find - a very reasonable price deal [and 2 for 1 drinks which included glasses of wine] with ample portions. The chicken and fish were good, salad well dressed and vegetables not over cooked. The beef tartare starter was delicious and enough to share as it was very rich. Not the greatest atmosphere or décor but close to Kings Cross and convenient. Sit downstairs as upstairs is a bit soulless.

Previous reviews looked good so we thought we'd give it a try. The set price menu was good value but limited however the food was delicious and the included glass of bubbly was good too. It wasn't too busy and we could hear each other speak without shouting. I'd definitely go there again.

Good risotto. Tiramisu was really nice but very watery hence only 3 stars. Went on a Tuesdays and tried to use the Meerkat 2for 1 which the restaurant didn't really honour and kept going on about a taste card. The point is it's 2 for 1 and in the end we only got desert off which isn't whatbi should be considering we purchased desert and main and should have only paid for one mains and one desert. Think that was naughty of them. Shouldn't sign up if you won't actually give 2 for 1 and then They were saying we could only do starter and main which is ridiculous. Food was nice but I prob won't go again simply due to not really honouring 2 for 1. Taking off thebxost for desert doesn't count. In the end gave up and paid

The food was lovely, couldn’t fault it and would highly recommend it; what I wouldn’t recommend is the service. Although the waitress was very attentive, when we arrived we told her that we had a voucher ‘tastecard’, the waitress said that we were mistaken and then subsequently tried to convience us otherwise right until I had to ask for the bill twice and continued to challenge the final amount until it was correct.

I would not recommend this place at all, firstly, it’s situated between Barclays Bank and Burger King so don’t let the fancy pictures fool you - it is not the cool vibe place it pretends to be. The food was really basic and cold despite of taking ages to bring. The place was almost empty and the tuff kept coming over to our table which is fine - probably better than not coming at all- but when the waitress asked my friend if she is done with her coffee when clearly half of her cup wa still fool we started raising our eyebrows. It wasn’t particularly disastrous but for the money you pay you can go to a really nice cool place like Caravan or German Gymnasium and have a really nice WARM brunch in a nice atmosphere.

I wasn't sure when I first arrived what to expect, however the set menu was excellent - portions were HUGE but delicious, The service was a little confused at time , but they are really nice and friendly. There is a hotel above so a nice ambience created from residents coming to eat. Its a great location just next to King Cross, so great for getting home too.

Booked a table for 8 people for brunch for a friend's hen do. We had a table upstairs and were the only people up there which was good as it meant we had our own area. 5 of us chose to do the unlimited prosecco option, which I mentioned when booking - once we sat at our table two bottles of prosecco were brought over, and every time one bottle was empty a fresh one was delivered. Food was lovely, no one had any complaints. Once finished, one of our party who had chosen to do the unlimited prosecco only ended up having one glass, so they just charged her for that instead. Service was fantastic, even though we were away from the rest of the restaurant we weren't forgotten about. Overall a great experience and I would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Handy for Kings Cross, staff were lovely. Food not great, beef tartar was like dog food and nettle pasta was completely tasteless. My friends liked their salmon and dessert was fine. Speed dating going on upstairs with a really loud whistle every 20 mins. Odd to have an event like that in a restaurant on a Friday night. I would avoid unless you need a kings Cross restaurant and everywhere else is booked up
