The food was amazing, I had the Angus steak and my husband had the wallaby, we both loved each and every mouthful. Our starters; I had chicken croquettes and my husband had fresh octopus salad we were in heaven. The service was second to none too, fast, informative light hearted and discrete. We had a lovely dinner date at the Moda. Lesley y
