A modern Brasserie in the heart of the V&A Waterfront. The space is really interesting; you could almost call in an industrial work of art. Where the space inspires the gastronomical works of arts one gets to enjoy.

Arriving at 12:00pm Brunch/Lunch was served. We chose to order from both The Restaurant Week Menu as well as the A la Carte Menu.
From the Restaurant Week Menu we tried the following:
Starters – Buffalo Wings, smoked Chilli basting, Ranch dressing and Celery sticks. Simply yummy, you just had to get in there and enjoy it, sticky fingers and all. A little spicy, but not overpowering and the Ranch Dressing added another dimension to the sticky wings.
Starters – Sesame Prawn Toast with Spring Onion dipping Sauce. A very interesting dish, having never tasted it, I was pleasantly surprise and the dipping sauce was really good as well. The sweet Prawns and the salty dipping sauce was the perfect combination.
RESTAURANT WEEK MENU - Mains – Fish & Chips, Beer battered fried hake, tartar sauce, Yorkshire caviar (mushy peas) and hand cut fries. The fish was perfectly cooked and nice and flaky. The beer batter was really good, nicely puffed up batter, crispy, but keeps the fish moist and delicious. The mushy peas were simply divine…
RESTAURANT WEEK MENU - Dessert – Vanilla Panna Cotta, with Raspberry coulis and fresh Summer Berries. Light Panna Cotta, slightly tarte coulis, perfectly balanced.
From the A la Carte Menu we tried:
A LA CARTE MENU - Starters –Seafood Ceviche, lime, sour crème Panna Cotta, crispy Shallot Vinaigrette- Refreshingly good, every bite was another burst of flavour. Dish of the Day.
A LA CARTE MENU - Mains – Norwegian Salmon, grilled with greens and Asian Sauce. Being serves the Asian Sauce on the side we loved it so much we simply emptied the sauce onto the Salmon and greens and the dish was a perfect balanced broth.
A modern take on Brasserie food, fresh flavours, perfectly prepared dishes and excellent service.
