Fabulous service, food tasted amazing and they were able to cater for a big group without disturbing the rest of the restaurant (too much haha) would go again and will definitely recommend

Loved the healthy food choices and fresh juices. Orange almond cake was especially good. Nice casual, quiet, sunny setting in courtyard during the week. Perfect for lunch or breakfast.
