We litterally dropped in without a reservation late on a Saturday night. We got a table for two immediately (they had a no-show). We were wisked to the dining room by a very friendly maitre d'. The decor is very nice, modern but not run of the mill. We really liked the copper lampshades. However the room could do with a bit more light and it wouldn't detract from the sense of intimacy. It was so dark we had a real problem reading our menus. The menu is good if somewhat short. We both ordered the pulled pork, but there were a couple of other dishes that sounded great. The meat was impeccably coocked. The only problem is that the barbecue sauce was absolutely overwhelming and ruined the delicate flavour. A pitty for a piece of very good meat that must have spent several hours cooking (we mentioned that to the maitre d' and said that they are still “experimenting”…mmmhh). The portions are on the right side of large and the coleslaw that accompanied the main dish was deliciously made and very balanced in flavour. The wine list is carefully selected to go with the strong flavours. The Melbec is worth a try. However the puddings are a real revelation. The Vin Santo cake is absolutely incredible: spongy and light. Forget the rest and go for that instead. Overall a very pleasant experience. The service was very good and competent. For a fun night out accompanied by a good bite to eat and good lively atmosphere this is a very good place.
