Wren, Charlotte Thu, 12 April 2018

We stumbled on this restaurant needing a place to eat almost last minute. Staff was friendly. Menu seems small but everything was awesome! We did a "tapas" meal and were totally satisfied. Definitely going back!

Liked: Casually elegant.
Disliked: Noisy.

Liked: Food and mission are both excellent!
