Mr and Mrs Zessimides and the whole staff work hard to produce distinctive food served in interesting surroundings, with varied cuisine covering the whole world.

Special dietary requirements can be catered for. From Monday to Saturday, the restaurant is open all day, with the kitchen closing at 10.30pm. On Sundays, the restaurant is open all day but the kitchen closes at 8 pm. Located very close to the best city centre night spots, and notably the Theatre Royal, so you can come for dinner before or after the show.
