    I think it would be great if the place could be made to feel a bit more cosy, the chairs are cold and uninviting to sit in. I would expect more comfort for the price paid.

    Great food and great value. The tuna starter was overpowered by the tostada. The bread was phenomenal as was the steak (though the balsamic was a bit overpowering). Staff are excellent. This is a step above UNO Mas in my view

    Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. We went for the chef's menu and can't remember the last time I've had such a great meal. Every dish was fantastic, and looking forward to going back again. The staff are just lovely, so helpful and friendly. Love the style and interior of the restaurant, particularly the fab pink bathroom!

    I used a cushion for my back so I could make myself more comfortable as table and back of bench far apart. It was taken off me as only for seats with a gap in the wall. I think for the price of the food you could spring for a few more cushions.

    Food was excellent, however it definitely feels like they've tried to squeeze more tables in and it does really impact the experience. Private conversations definitely aren't private as you're basically eating with the tables either side of you.
