We weren't expecting to find such a hidden gem when we walked through the understated bar at the front of the restaurant. The food and service both turned out to be excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there.

My son and I were sick of tapas (pinxos?) and saw that this was a recommended sit-down kind of place. The restaurant, behind the rather seedy looking bar in the front, tries hard to be professional and high-quality, and it didn't really disappoint. But neither...More
