I had one of the best dates ever in this place. Amazing atmosphere. A great view and a splendid bar with a great bartender. Tasted one of the best cocktails here. The food and the candles makes it go over the edge.

avoid their cocktails like plague.. i think this should be self explanatory :P Their starters are brilliant.. spagetti in white sauce was divine :) location is convenient.. and they have good offers on weekdays.. Make sure u clearly spell out ur order.. We got ours mixed up and it was chaotic.

If you love spending time with your friends in a good ambience over a cocktail, The couch is a place to be, since it has a nice ambience. Tip: Visit on Weekdays, Weekends would be costly.

Well worth a visit for the great ambience. All white and a great breeze. Food is average and in some cases below average. Two examples, the hummus had chilli flakes ( stay authentic guys ). The supposed amazing oreo cheese cake was not really a cheese cake. And the temperature of the alleged cheese cake was wrong. The old place... More
