would recommend to anyone looking for multiple Tapas style choice, we had eight of them. Great cocktails, using Fresh squeezed juices
we will be back
Perfect for group gathering!
the dine out menu is tasty with decent price of $18. It highlights the muscle of the chef!
portion is enough. After finish the dessert, it make you feel just full. However,I still added an appetizer as a La cart. Awesome and I believe it will be perfect to pair up with a special drink .
Friendly service. Chic decor.
Good food. Creative cocktails.
Enjoyed a nice meal with friends.
The design of the restaurant is very nice. Cool devour and nice furniture. It is located on the second floor so there's a bit of a view and its nice and separated from the bustle of the street. Location is easy to get to.
The food was uninspiring. The pork belly which is typically juicy and flavourful was overcooked and bland. Both appetizers weren't very good either. None of the food was inedible, but it wasn't particularly good. The plating was nice. The desserts were great and the best part of the meal. The drinks were good and the selection was admirable.
Not a place I would probably go to dinner again, though I might go to hang out at the bar.
Service was spotty at times, soup came with bacon the first time when I requested without then Luke warm the second time I got it. Lamb was good but mostly bone.. Lemon cheesecake was good. Cute little place I like the decor a lot. Mostly banquettes which is my favorite. Good overall experience, I'd go back
Enjoyed the night thoroughly. Good food, with better presentation.
Very good service along with a great ambiance.
Went here for Dine Out 2015. Service from the host and waitress were excellent, and the environment was warm and inviting. Had a sparkling cocktail that was well-muddled and had layers of flavour.
Starter - Octopus Carpaccio: A little plain, could have used a sauce or a touch of citrus, and had small, very bitter pieces of some vegetable that everyone at our table decided to pick out of the dish. The Octopus was sliced thin and fresh, but the dish was somewhat bland. The Main was Pork belly, and though it was cooked expertly, it needed more of the cherry syrup/sauce to contrast the savoury of the pork. Portions were small, which makes sense because it's a tapas-style resturant, but still left the restaurant hungry.
Biggest win of the night - the lemon goat cheese cake. I would go back for this one dish if they ever have it again. I love tart desserts, and this was a perfect balance of citrus/sour and sweet. Who knew a goat cheese cake would be SO delicious.
I probably would not go again unless we're in the area and feel like having a stellar cocktail, but it would very much appeal to people who live off Granville, or like a casual bar for the evening that is beautiful, but doesn't take itself too seriously.
Went for the dine out menu.
Everything was good except for the proportions.
Its dine-out menu so maybe the regular time food are better?
Having said that,
The service was good. The waiter was fairly attentive to all the tables without being too imposing The food took awhile to come and mine pork belly was tough and burnt. Should have asked for another one but I didn't really want to let other in the group wait. The cocktail was interesting. We had the prince of yang and i really dig the salt on the lip of the cup but otherwise felt the drink was a little too herby and sweet for my liking.
Service and ambience were nice but I was disappointed with the food. Portions were small, likely due to Dine Out. The pork belly and lamb were on the tough side. The lemon cheesecake did not actually have any lemon in there other than the curd on top and the chocolate mousse was more like whipped cream with chocolate flakes in it. I did like the raspberry coulis on the bottom of the mousse though. Perhaps the food quality is better when it is not during Dine Out.
