Fodor's Review

If you're looking for Birkenstocks, you're in the wrong place. But if you're hungry, that's another matter. Variety rules at this chaotic multiroom restaurant-cum-club. Start with an imported beer in the Belgian Bar, then head to Backstage to dine among the fake trees and other theatrical decorations before retiring to the private cave in the Diamond for after-dinner coffee. In summer there is also a street-front patio, which is invariably packed with locals. Although food at the "Shoe" isn't haute cuisine, portions are generous, and it's very hard to leave. There's regular live music too, including jazz on Monday evenings.
