  • The service and atomosphere is wonderful! The marinated grilled octopus, Wagyu Striploin med -rare and the whipped cheese cake is the best!

  • We love Tiffins! Just want to be sure I’m reading this correctly. The new prix fix menu will replace the entire current lunch menu at Tiffins. If we want the pan-seared duck breast [which is done to perfection!] or Wagyu Striploin we will have to make dinner reservations? These are our favorite main courses.
