    Highly recommend this wonderful spot that serves creative Israeli cuisine with influences from all over the world. The "aubergine mess" is a must.

    Lovely restaurant! Perfect for a date as it is all sharing food. The taster menu was delish and came with surprises and was great value for money! Would defiantly recommend and go to again!

    Was difficult to pick a favourite dish. Each one was delicious with wonderful flavours coming through. So happy to have discovered this place.

    Great food. Refreshingly different. Nice covered seating outdoors with heaters. Friendly service, a little slow and waiter had no idea of wine so could not provide recommendations.
