    First time eating Israeli food - delicious food which is perfect for sharing with friends. I wouldn’t bother with the deserts when we return.

    Michelin Special was disappointing, had nothing to do with Michelin and overall was not worth the money and visit.

    Delicious food, pleasant atmosphere. We were in the centre of the ground floor, and it was quite cold, as the front door was kept wide open.

    We ordered the set brunch. The humous and aubergine starters were excellent but the remaining selection was poor. The main courses were ok but disappointing. The service was casual and friendly.
