We liked the savoury tagines we tried here. Service very quick and friendly. Food very good for the price.

Great for a drink or two but music is slightly dated and an older vibe (we are both in our 30s and I found the clientele was mainly couples over 50). No view either which I thought was a let down.

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
