We visited the restaurant on a Friday evening before a show at the Casino du Hull. The restaurant is perfect for a light dinner or a lunch. They serve small plates that I would compare to a spanish Tapas restaurant. Two people in our group...More

Came here on a Thursday night, and it was busier than I thought it would be. There are always a tonne of unique wines to try by the glass, and they offer a flight of three tastings each of curated red and white wines. The...More
