We went in for a quiet early evening drink, and received the most amazing service. Really relaxed and friendly, And completely unpretentious. Table service too, and really efficient too, without being over-bearing. When I asked about a wine on the menu, our bartender brought out two bottles and poured me a taster of both so I could choose which one I preferred.
Such relaxed, homely service – something I don’t see often in most bars and restaurants. Really impressed and will definitely be back!
This building is well decorated creating a nice mellow feel with excellent music
The food was amazing, we had breads, the cheese trio and olives with feta. The cheese plate was Deliscious with persimmon to accompany. The olives and feta went extremely well with the cheeses.
The service was incredible. Quick to help and knew the answers to all our questions about the menu.
We recieved complimentary chocolates to finish off which I would highly recommend.
I will be coming back very soon.
Very relaxing, and the food we ordered was perfect. We had a tasting plate with smoked fish, honeydew melon, scallops and more to share. I tried a new cocktail – I think it’s called Texas Fire – great. Sitting on the deck, enjoying the afternoon, we couldn’t ask for more!
I lunched here last week, on a day when the sunshine was generous & warm, so we sat outside and dined alfresco.
Also generous & warm was the service. Because although the small plates were a little slow to arrive… the maitre d’ was attentive & kept us informed. He also followed up our meals with a couple of complimentary chocolate truffles (one whiskey – yum! and another limoncello).
Regarding the food: My watermelon with mint, ricotta & rocket with balsamic glaze was refreshing – and had a lovely clashing of sweet and sour and creamy and salady.
The smoked fish remoulade & lemon that came with garlic toasts, was beautifully moreish, with a lovely texture.
A Corona w slice of lemon topped off the summery autumn lunch. It was a lovely relaxed social place where I’d definitely be keen to lounge (and eat) (and drink) for hours!
[17 May 2012 ****] Went here with a group after the place had only been open for 2 weeks. It was empty the whole time we had our lunch, apart from men installing brand-new TV screens. Food was great when it arrived; unfortunately, that took the better part of an hour, and five minutes after ordering, we were told that they didn’t have any mushroom risotto. I suspect that these are just teething problems though, so rating based on food only.
[20 July 2012 **] Returned to give this place another chance after seeing that they now have a limited lunch menu. Not that impressed with my salad, and two colleagues ordered seafood chowder only to be told a few minutes later that the chowder was not yet ready (we were eating after 1pm).
Ok, so, thought we would have a wander through the new Victoria Market and ended up popping in here, entrance just off Drake street. Exposed brickwork, soft wooden lines and a laid back casual yet classy ambience embrace you as you enter.
with is high ceilings and long bar this venue has placed itself well ready for high volumes of cocktail drinkers looking for a wind down. Then… There is outside, overlooking Vic park its is open ensuring all around day time sun, and with the patio heaters primed for the darkers hours will easily slide into a cozy evening escape come the darker months.
As far as service goes, sometime this aspect is over analysed, you cant go wrong with a smile, friendly chat and attentive knowledge of the customer experience… And thats what you get here. Spot on.
so far so good for this new kid on the block, the foundations are set…
