We were running late and only had 45' for our meal. We called ahead and gave our order from the menu on-line. First course arrived within 5' of ourarrival, and main course within 5' of our finishing our first course. We even had time for dessert! And moreoer, the food was delicious. The staff were extremely helpful, doing all they could to enable us to have our meal in time for the opera next door, without maing us feel rushed.
Lovely in every way: decor, ambience, service, menu and food. Perfect for the pre theatre meal we needed but will be back. Cheeky name too
Very nice restaurant, menu had good choices and service very good. Rather noisy with large Office Party, but when they left, good atmosphere. Would definitely go back again.
