We ate with two other friends on a Saturday night and ordered the whole tapas menu, it was the perfect amount of food for four of us and we got to try a bit of everything. Would definitely recommend the food here.

Definitely a place to try if you're in Hahei. My husband and I ordered the charcuterie board (not your typical board), mussels, and the steak and all were delicious and plentiful. To top if off, service was great!

The meal was not up to the standard of old. The setting is very good but the standard of food is nowhere near what it was a few years ago.
