This a really popular hangout place for drinks on Commercial Drive. I had gone here a couple of years ago for a year-end drinky get-together. This time, I went with my girlfriends. We actually had a 20 minute wait on a Wednesday night! The wait was well worth it though...I think we all just found a new Top 5 restaurant.
The food was incredible. The Havana Mussels are a must. They were huge mussels, the portion was very decent, and just absolutely delicious. Yam fries were tasty as well. If you're looking for a pasta dish, you must order the chicken penne. I don't think any of us have ever enjoyed a chicken penne pasta this good before. The only dish I think we'll pass on next time is the wings. They were over battered and kind of dry.
And what's a girls night out dinner without drinks, right? We had a couple of pitchers of the champagne sangria. Absolutely divine!
The restaurant's kind of funky with the initials-carved-in-tree feel; but instead it's all the walls of the restaurant. I just wish the funky art gallery at the back was converted into another dining room so people wouldn't have to wait to get a seat.
The service was okay. Not commendable but not bad either.
Food was so good that I'm heading back there tonight (only 2 days after!) but with other girlfriends this time.
