The food was nice. Good service, nice staff, well presented food. The place can be very busy, we chanced a walk in anyway and the staff were very helpful and managed to find us a table relatively quickly.

This is a hidden gem. amazing food, superb quality and great service. Portion sizes may look small but they fill you just enough so that you can enjoy 3 or 4 courses without feeling overly full. Wonderful variety of fresh local produce.
