Had a great meal here on a Friday evening and was well priced. The only slight downside is that it a noisy restaurant, however this did not put me off and I will visit again.

The restaurant was almost full with a lively crowd. Staff friendly and helpful. Wide choice of dishes on an international menu. You order at the bar and are served at the table. Our dishes were very tasty, and plenty of food.

I'm not sure but it was really busy when we went so I'd recommend it. Ask for a table by the window the view is fab. It would be a shame to miss it
