The restaurant was super busy and staff were stressed and forgetting orders. They brought the wrong food to our table twice and I asked for water 4 times. The food was nice, but atmosphere not great. Also, the table had a bar on two sides which meant I had to sit sideways the whole night. It made it very awkward and uncomfortable.
The food is fantastic and the staff are very attentive the noise is quite loud though. All is really fresh and hot or cold when it should be .
Relaxed, casual atmosphere. Good food, friendly service. No fuss and recommended for families, a catch up with friends or a quite dinner for two. Enjoy!
