Good selection of food & cocktails. Quick service but waiter wasn’t entirely enthusiastic & didn’t recommend any dishes. Food was really tasty though, good portion sizes & cocktails tasted good too.

You can just walk in which is what I have done on the last two occasions. But, this is a popular restaurant so it's best to make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
