We had a couple of drinks here. It's not the liveliest of bars but it's a good atmosphere to be able to sit and chat. Prices are on the higher side but there are some good cocktails on offer.

Went for a business meeting so the bill was covered on an expense account (not mine). The food and drinks were fine, but overpriced in my opinion.

How about a fresh, delicious croissant to start the day. The breakfasts were tasty, the prices were reasonable, and the service was friendly, fast, and efficient.

Really friendly staff and some lovely food (not too expensive) Set menu was only $38 which meant less than paid to a local Italian in the same area but wider styles to pick from.
