Posto molto carino, intimo. Servizio ottimo e veloce... forse un po troppo. Piatti particolari e buoni. Dolci ottimi. Nice atmosphere and very nice staff. Service was a bit too fast but food was lovely and a varied menu. Desserts are really great, huge helpings!

We had heard great things about Kai and gave it a try. Very professional service in a very relaxing atmosphere. We had three courses each and were only dissappointed by one item. Even that, the pheasant, was wonderful except for being overpowered by breading etc. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it is exceedingly good value for an experience... More

Kai, is just incredible. The best coffee and cake. Fish fingers for lunch along with the best homemade soup and then there is dinner... menus change everyday and everything is in season. Sustainable eating with people with creative flair and a serious vibe. Amazing staff and always a pleasure to be in Kai.

Still top of their game in Kai, we had another fabulous meal to celebrate New Year. While the tables were a little overcrowded it didn't take away from the warm friendly ambiance that is Kai. Deep fried scallops for starters were mouth watering a very unique way of cooking scallops. The crab starter was equally delicious. The two main courses... More
