The menu is always different, so worth a regular visit. Go in a large group and try a bit of everything. Try the cocktails,

Tiny little place out of the way. Wonderful atmosphere. Would recommend booking as they only have space for no more than 24. Food was great, love the prawns. I will be returning.
