Went with friends and loved it. Interesting building, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the food was excellent. The flavours were subtle and blended well, it was beautifully presented and the bread is delicious. I would highly recommend it.

So friendly and such great food. I have no idea why it isn't packed. We always book but have never been there when it's full. Outstanding and we'd recommend it to anyone. THE most delicious food.
