    We had the most delicious dinner, and loved the warm atmosphere. The chicken cassoulet and the slow cooked lamb ragout with gnocchi were incredible.

    Food was excellent, Pinotta has always been a favourite but now with Pip Sibley in the kitchen things have stepped up to another level. Particularly good confit of duck, although all of our mains were delicious.

    This neighbourhood wine bar is beautifully designed and feels well-loved by locals. Unpretentious and charming, the food is delicious and the service is superb. Delicious wines and standout martinis. The atmosphere is perfect combination of low-key and elevated.

    Cosy local restaurant that excels! A couple on our table had the lamb (said it was excellent) another couple shared the chicken with equally positive comments. The cured trout with rye bread was also a stand out.
