Wonderful restaurant in the Mount, location is perfect for people watching while you indulge in some seriously good food and coffee too. Great friendly staff and an interesting selection on the menu provides for a simple solution to any meal time, any time of the day.

We found that we could not eat what was put in front of us because it was so large, then the penny dropped. This restaurant specialises in shared plates and we had gloriously overordered. The food was really good, the wine was a reasonable price, there was a wide range of both food and drink. It was really good.

Went with friends for dinner . Food was good size but tasteless . Islander with meat tasted boiled although advertised as grilled . Understaffed , waiters overworked . Disappointing as many other good restaurants around . All in our group we're unhappy with food , summed up best with a comment from someone that food lacked "wow " factor .

Our group dined here early before a concert. The delay from ordering to receiving was not long but we were early at 5.30. Love the scallops and bruschetta, the kebabs looked great and the feedback was 'too big'. Have been back a couple of times. Nice foot and staff.

Flies everywhere. Tables felt sticky and service was abrupt. They really need to clean tables with a disinfectant to stop attracting flies. However - the coffee was A++ . The Veggy pizza was D-- .
