    Went for Christmas Dinner in the restaurant and it was a very pleasant experience! The holiday decorations are superb for which you will feel definitely the holiday season. Christmas cracker on the table was highly appreciated as it makes you feel that they offered extra effort on the holiday dining experience. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The food from starter to dessert were really good especially the mains! Loved and impressed with the good portion and taste of the Christmas Turkey meal. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    My and my office colleagues had been to this place for breakfast and I must say the dishes that we ordered were amazingly tasty. I had ordered full veggie breakfast which had avocado, poached eggs , baked beans, stir fried mushrooms, tomatoes.. The coffee was hot and good. The ambience is lovely. The location of this place is perfect. We had reserved the place so we didn't have to wait or anything. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

    Booked in for a cocktail masterclass which was amazing and the perfect group activity! The service, atmosphere and quality of the cocktails exceeded all expectations. Being able to choose the cocktails prior to the booking was great as we were able to cater to the group. Big shout out to Sophia who went above and beyond to make the day special ☺️✨ Will definitely be booking again in the future!
