We ate dinner here for the first time, having seen the building many times from the outside: a mid-nineteenth century Grecian villa. Inside the décor is traditional, in that pattern and colour are used liberally. Mint green ceilings are in evidence throughout.
The restaurant was busy with older local couples, suggesting a loyal customer base. It is quite expensive for a regular meal out.
The food was on the whole well done: we had lamb and duck breast accompanied by classic sauces and excellent dauphinois potatoes. However, this came after starters which were less assured. Smoked salmon is difficult to get wrong, but it was a surprise to see it accompanied by deep fried prawns in a very spicy batter, beetroot in vinegar and a salad dressed over-acidulously. Perhaps a different chef is devising and preparing the starters? For dessert, I chose the salted caramel chocolate tart, which looked wonderful but was quite a challenge to eat. Other choices seemed better, although I have never seen crème brulee served with ice-cream before.
