Went in the evening (7pm) hoping to get a quick bite in before my life drawing class at Cass Art just across the road. The service was on the forgetful side of neglectful- it took our waitress quite a while to get back to us to ask us what we wanted to order- but she was polite, if a little cold.
The food, however was gorgeous. I had the Cuban burger and it was crammed full of pulled pork and ham, with generous but not swamping sauces and the perfect amount of pickle. The little pot of gravy on the side seemed a bit pointless, but I guess it would be useful if you wanted your bun to be soggy. Fries were golden and very crispy- pretty much perfection there. The portions are quite large so I would recommend sharing 1 side between 2 people or 2 sides between 3.
Atmosphere felt a little lacking, but I think that was just partly the day of the week and the person I went with- we were both quite sleepy following a couple of pints. This would be a great place to go before hitting the town; you could easily cram 6 people into one of their booths and share all the sides. It's not cheap, but it's hardly bank breaking, and you get a very good amount of food for your money.
