We holidayed at the Monaco with part of the grandchildren's treat being a restaurant dinner. They felt the most special diners. The menu did need explanation thankfully with the explanation we avoided slow service. The calamari was the best I have ever had.

Went to TMK last night and had a lovely dinner - partner had brisket and I had calamari. Both dishes were delicious and presented well. Service was friendly - main waiter Tommy couldn’t do enough to ensure we had an enjoyable dinner.
