Rolled up for a nightcap after eating next door. Staff were friendly and helpful. The cocktail menu is extensive and reasonably priced. ambiance is dark and moody, DJ was great. Love the outdoor area. Great bar to go and have a few night caps or a session.

The food was very tasty and the serving sizes were fair. The corn fritters were a hit, and the tacos certainly didn't disappoint.
Great service, and we were also allowed to split the bill.

After a work function next door at Mexicano's we headed into TDL - the service was the best we have ever experienced in a crowded bar (made even more exceptional when all the rugby supporters arrived after the Lions game).

Cool place. Love it. Want to go back. The best lay out. The staff were onto it and after every dollar in coming around all the time in asking for drinks. It was small but set out to make the most. Music was lourd and good for keeping the mood on a high. Just wanted to stay all night but no money left!! Drinks were great. Fire pits were cool apart from this being the smokers area as well. Will be back of course.
