The best meat we ate in Europe. A dignified service and specially prepared food, as if we were the only customers of the restaurant. Highly recommended.

Definitely worthy of it's No 1 rating. Food is delicious, can't believe the terrible review recently written. Extremely busy so need to book, reasonably priced for the quality. Staff are fun and make it a very happy environment to have dinner either in a crowd or an intimate dinner for two.
