“A wee gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

As we were staying in the Elizabeth House hotel opposite we dined there on the Saturday night and were glad we did. The restaurant is rustic looking. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly.
The food was delicious. We both had the mussels for starters. The portions were very large. For mains my husband had pork belly I had the sea bass, again both were delicious.
Next time we are staying in the a Elizabeth we will be dining here.

“Midweek meet up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Visiting area looked for a new venue and selected this having read reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was varied and well cooked and arrived in a timely manner. Having received rave reviews disappointed that there was no creme brûlée to enjoy! Would happily return and consider good value for money.

“A Jewel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Enjoyed a really lovely meal in this restaurant yesterday. Three of us each had different main courses and each one was excellent. The crème brulee is to die for. Service and ambience really good. No hesitation in recommending, you won't be disappointed.
