Visited last night for my friends birthdays and we absolutely loved this place. The ambience was fantastic, staff very helpful and polite and the menu catered for us all.

The steak frites were "cooked to perfection", and the tapas was gorgeous.

If I had to recommend one thing, it would be to ask for the tapas plates to be warmed as I am a very slow eater.....

Highly recommend you visit - you will not be disjointed. We will definitely be going back

Hi Lynne

Thank you for the great review, it's always lovely to read such wonderful reviews that i can pass on to my team. I have let the kitchen know about your feedback regarding the tapas dishes and they will be aiming to deliver that immediately.

We hope to see you again soon for another Steak!

Thank you

Jon

We ate here twice in our three day visit to Derby and left wishing it was our local !!
Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff, really great menu and family friendly. Very reasonable in price too.
We particularly enjoyed the breakfast muffin, and the falafel ciabatta.
A gem of a place, great for coffee and breakfast, equally good for tapas and cocktails....

Came in on the off chance & were pleasantly surprised. We decided to have a couple of burgers with our drink. I had the Chicken,Bacon & Avocado burger & my partner had the Ultimate Chicken burger, both with sweet potato fries. Both meals were presented well, unfortunately my partner’s chicken had been over cooked. We brought this to the attention of the gent who served us & he promptly removed this, apologetic about the standard & offered to replace the order. Whilst waiting for the replacement dish, we were totally shocked that we were given a refund for my partner’s meal!! Again, the gent apologised saying that this wasn’t the normal service as we’d come out out to eat together & we weren’t able to.

The meals were brilliant & as you can see, nothing was left. Oh, and the drinks are good too!!

Will definitely be back, the food won us over as did the service.

My friend and I went on a Saturday night and it wasn't too busy so the service was quick which was just what we needed. We both ordered from the vegan menu and had the rice bowl, which was absolutely delicious. It's so nice to see a café have so much variety for vegetarians/vegans, and if you are a meat-eater, there is also plenty for them to have too!
