I had a few doubts over this place, having read the reviews on TripAdvisor, where it seemed to have gone 50-50. We were celebrating a birthday and decided to go check the place, the menu and price as this was not available online (something the management can do to improve adverts and attract more customers!). The management was very warm to us, and that definitely allowed us to choose to go there. We hadn't made up our minds yet, as there was a 7 course meal at a slightly expensive price, and a teaser of the 7 course meal, which was a 5 course meal at a much cheaper price. They gave us a contact number and said we can call if we still want to come, or just walk in before 9.00pm. After a few hours, we decided we would go back and share a 7 course and a 5 course meal between the 2 of us. We got there, and there was a nice warm ambient light, only 3 tables taken and we were walked to the end of the room, where it was quieter. We started off with a piece of bread that you get to choose from 4 different kinds (white, wholewheat, carrot and olives) and butter with herbs. We ordered 2 fruit mocktails, which were good. We were served a piece of Coocoo with sweet chili sauce - it was amazing, I wanted more! My starter was a Trio of Flying Fish, each prepared differently - the fish cake was a 10/10, and presentation was very well done! Next was a Seafood Chowder, which was pretty tasty as well. At that point I was already full, as the chowder was a big plate! Then we moved on to an Orange Sorbet, which sadly lacked a bit of taste - it was a bit too watery and had melted a bit before being served. Main course: Roasted Beef Tenderloin - probably one of the best meals I have ever had, and definitely the best beef I have tried - it was juicy, it melted in my mouth, almost as soft as the mashed potatoes that it came with. On to desserts, and I picked the Dark chocolate Souffle, which sadly had already popped, just like in a previous review. It was my first ever souffle, but it tasted like heaven! Lastly, I ended the night with a brewed Coffee, and it was quite nice. Now, during the whole evening, there was a band playing and with a few romantic songs at time for a pleasurable evening. Service was 10/10 - everyone had a smile on their face and attended to us multiple times asking if we needed anything. We exchanged some local stories with them too, and it felt very friendly. Food came very quickly, too quickly at times as I wished I had more time to let the food in my stomach sit for a bit. Now to top it all, I was in touch with them by email since a day before, and I had asked if they had anything special that they can make for one's birthday - they said they would take of it - and they sure did! After our desserts, I was myself doubly surprised to see this beautiful round chocolate cake, with Happy Birthday written on a marzipan top, with a candle to reach our table - I had completely forgotten about my request, hence my double surprise!! We couldn't touch it, as we were so full, so we asked to wrap it up for home. We asked for the bill, and we paid £100 including tax and service charge - we were not charged for the cake!
