Food was lovely but there was a large function on and they had a live band on. We were not told this at the time of booking. you couldn’t hear the waiter speak and there was barley any conversation between the table. I would go again but I would be asking if they have a large function on before booking.

Great food. Good and attentive service. Very noisy - too noisy for my liking. Will definitly try again after Christmas ad he that noise level only due to Christmas Parties.

Great place to go with friends. Food was delicious and great value for money. we had the Chef's Table selection for 3 of us and one person had the vegan option - best vegan food ever!

Our only "concern" is the other patron's behaviour brought the mood down a bit.
The Venue it's self is wonderful, and the food is amazing. Especially the Chicken Bao.
Our intersate guests had a great time

Great atmosphere with the sun going down over some delicious cocktails and only got better when the food started arriving! Recommend the chefs selection, absolutely delicious fresh selection of plates and you definitely won’t go home hungry!!

The venue and food are great however the service needs some work as it didn't live up to the 'experience' advertised. Whilst our waitress was polite, sweet and well presented she was obviously very inexperienced or perhaps not suffiently trained. We waited over 30 minutes for our initial drinks/food order to be taken whilst staff either chatted or cleared away empty tables, our glesses remained empty, staff had no no knowledge of the food or drinks menu and coordination between the staff was lacking.

Our food was awesome and very fairly priced. The waitstaff were impeccable and very attentive. I can’t remember the name of our girl but she had red hair and a platt. Give her a raise! She was great.
The only thing I would suggest is a coffee or hot chocolate style desert. My mother in-law doesn’t drink and at the end of our meal really wanted a sweet drink but we couldn’t find one. We were told to go downstairs to up town for an iced coffee.
Otherwise we had a great time.
The music could be a little less techno and a little more bluesy too..

Went out to dinner and drinks for a ladies night out. Booked three weeks in advance requesting a window booth but were placed in the middle of the venue. They had a dj playing quite loudly at 6.30pm, so it made it difficult to have a conversation. We all ordered meals at the same time. Five meals came out, the last one took another 25 mins to come out. Was not worth the wait.
We chose this place because it is really pretty but would be better for sunset drinks.

However, I specifically requested a booth close to the windows. I asked several times, when boots where empty, for us to change but the waitress refused to change our seat. I just thought it was really bad service considering I asked for a window seat. The experience was not as good as I would have liked it...

The location, layout and furnishings were lovely and the staff, service and food outstanding, but we found a large majority of the clientele very pretentious which was a little off putting

Beautiful venue, very nice location, nicely decorated and good location. Food a little average and so many wait staff asking us the same questions over and over. They need to communicate with each other as none seemed to really know what was going on.

It was for my 25th birthday and I reserved a table over a month in advanced and we were shoved right near the door in the corner so I wasn’t too happy about that. I would have had a much better time at a nicer table and actually in the ambiance of the venue.

Enclosed rooftop bar with 1970 decor and no views .. food was luke warm and the meat in the curry was fatty and grizzly .. not enough staff to serve guests which made the wait for drinks very very long . I was expecting a trendy open roof bar with views over the coast with a cool vibe .. disappointing.

Had a great night. Need to have a sign to tell you how to get to rooftop bar. Just a tiny bit expensive. But ambience spectacular. Will go again....

The setting was very nice and the food was really good, but the drink service was slow, especially the first round.
Also only a small range of beer available for such a nice restaurant

We had a very enjoyable time. Got confused by the dress code as our online booking said no T-shirts for men but others had them on. Spoke to our waiter and he said this wasn't the case but was going to look into it. Plates a little small on serving size, may need to tell people about that. Overall, very pleasant, we'll be back.

Been there are few times now , I must admit Friday wasn't the best as before , perhaps an improvement with online booking service and the waitress we had with her customer service skills . Experience was not as awesome we have had on past occasions from the time you walk in ! I would still recommend and go back , based on my other visits . Would be a shame if it drops its mark as it opened up on a high note and the location , food , drinks are a high standard which I will gladly pay if service is kept up as well.

I loved the venue the food itself was really tasty but very small portions only 5 pieces of calamari in our meal ,sweet potato fries had majority potatoe fries in the bowl and crunchy chicken very small serve but tasty. I wouldn’t spend the money on the food upstairs as it was expensive and we left hungry. Was a shame as everything else about the venue fantastic .

Great place for drinks and a share platter or for an event. Love the decor, white marble columns, pink crunch velvet seating and cute little booths. Menu selection is good. We tried the zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta, no stand out flavors. The calamari was tender and tasty, so we're the circa fries. The chicken in the bao was over cooked and lacked flavor. Prices were expensive for the quality. Cocktails and ambience great.

The venue is beautiful, definitely skewed to the female market being so girlie and pink, plus as you have to book a table. Great service, fabulous cocktails and lovely food. The only down fall was having to wait downstairs in the lobby for someone to let us up in the lift. Then we had other friends join us so had to find a staff member to let them up the lift.

Brilliant location, food and service, but the having to interrupt staff at the downstairs restaurant and wait to be escorted to upstairs was a bit of a nuisance - they need to have a concierge/maitre-de downstairs to greet guest as they arrive - alternatively, they should have clearly signed designated spot to wait for someone to show you upstairs.

A great venue, but a bit nosy with the DJ that may appeal to the younger clientele. Having dined in the Gastropub previously I was a little disappointed with the menu. If you are offering Tappas they need to be more enticing.
