We had a dinner here. Lovely restaurant, good a.m.bience. The Boeuf was not as tender as expected. The Goat Feta Soufflés were nice but not hot enough.

Loved the atmosphere, you didn't have to yell to have a conversation as there was plenty of space between the tables. Awesome service from our waitress and the food was amazing!! - make sure to save room for desserts.. :)

Nice and easy relaxed venue, enjoyed the food, but I do dislike waitresses chewing gum, I thought that was disgusting. But couldn't fault the food or service

Early dinner the day before our trip to the Ed Sheehan concert. Arriving at a suitably Ed-themed restaurant, we joined the other guests as they finished their pre-show meals. Apparently it had been v busy. Great venue, good service and in the main good food....More
