Unfortunately we had quite a bad experience, I booked a table and asked for a good view of the rugby to watch the match on Saturday. Upon arrival we found out there was no TV sound and you had to hire wireless headphones, unfortunately half the headphones they had for hire didn't work !! We ended up leaving an hour after our arrival.
Great location but very chaotic. limited menu is fine and came knowing that but had run out of 2 dishes including vegetarian. No tea at all, no orange juice. Apologetic and friendly staff but clearly a management issue and not a problem solver approach.
We had to wait half hour until somebody actually took our order after we went at waited at the bar and we didn't get napkins or cutlery - had to go grab them. The food was tasteless and the tea was served in anplastig jug so you would spill all the hot tea on the table each time you poured it in the glass. They had no souce, ketchup - had to go ask 2 digferent waiters to get some mustard... All in all, nothing was right!
Lovely warm welcome. The food was excellent although service a little slow. Some items were missed but quickly rectified when pointed out. Staff very attentive, would definitely visit again.
Large rom and nice menu. My friands and I had a very pleasant time ! It may be even nicer to go there in summer to enjoy the large terrace !
the door/window was kept open which was annoying. we were sitting at a table by a window door. other than that the food was very tasty
The staff were so friendly and so much fun. The drinks were high quality and the vibe was fun and modern and meaningful! The menu was a little short for the money but everything else made up for it! Can't wait to try the brunch!
Love this place. Chilled atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and good coffee. Perfect location along the canal for a relaxing Sunday breakfast with a few friends.
No one greets you on arrival and there was no staff to be seen. I went looking for someone and eventually found them. They had no table despite us booking. We were eventually seated and then ignored for 20 minutes before someone brought us menus. We ordered food and drink from a very expensive and limited menu. 45 minutes later the drinks turned up. 15minutes after the food arrived (1 hour after ordering). It was average...especially for the price. We paid using an app so we could leave immediately. Never going back.
Great eatery. Lots of space and friendly atmosphere. The waiter was very attentive and made us feel relaxed. The food and the wine were excellent.
