After a tiring business day I wanted to have small but nice meal. Sake, I chose wasn’t available. Sake offered wasn’t great. I asked for Seared Beef, wasn’t available. Waitress suggested grilled eggplant in muffins, it was awful. The worst was Sashimi, that was poor...More

This place has tasty food, creative cocktails and beverages, smiling staff, an excellent atmosphere, elegant decor and a warm friendly feeling. We were happy with the prices for our experience and we enjoyed our visit. A quiet setting for conversation.

So comfortable, the decor is rich, plush, dark and cosy. I think the menu has improved since last year I enjoyed the food way better this time, it was less spicy too which suits me. Friendly service, great drink options too.
