First time there with a few mates. Food and cocktails were amazing. They had happy hour before 7pm with $7 cocktail which was a nice surprise. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Loved it! Visited The Hour Glass with a group of friends. My friend and I ordered three different items to share and loved them all! Fair prices, good size servings - not to big, and each of good standard. Nice wine too. Definitely be back.

Met friends for drinks and decided to stay on for dinner. We chose several small plates to share amongst the 4 of us and they were all delicious. The atmosphere has a really friendly vibe and the staff are great.

The tapas portion was big, much more than we thought. Some were good, some not so much. The most memorable was the squid... And we got to try grasshoppers although it was only average. Quite cramped. Tables much too close to one another... But overall...More
