This is a pretty cool place with, the now must have, counter seating. Everything was pretty tasty and cooked very well; however, I felt that it was a bit under spiced (well for my tastes anyway).

It was the first time that I had been to the new location. We had a nice meal there, although some of the dishes lacked a bit of punch at times.

One of my companions found it weird that it was starters (although we did share these) and mains each, instead of sharing. To be fair, given the popularity of the ‘small plates’ format I suppose it not would one would necessary expect.

Every dish, during our lunch here, was very good but the two main courses were top class. We will be trying to go again in the evening but it already seems quite difficult to book…
