The dishes were just so memorable!! My friend is a local and I was visiting. Turned out we both had this restaurant in mind, and getting to try it together for the first time was awesome :)

Salmon or beef tartare? GET BOTH!!!

This restaurant is truly amazing! New special everyday and everything is fresh! The staff is very well trained and friendly. The cocktails are great I would recommend the pallor one which was my favourite.

I had such a nice experience there and the place is perfect for date or going by yourself ( if alone sit at the bar and you will have fun )

I can't wait to be backmore

This place is amazing. Please do NOT go so I can always get in and the buzz dies. The bar is the place to be but not a great space for waiting so be forewarned. Good staff and great service, amazing music.
