I took my wife to the new Rooftop Restaurant for her birthday, on a snowy Tuesday evening in December. Understandably the restaurant was a little quiet and lacking in ambience but that is normally the way with her birthday meals. Restaurants are either full of Christmas parties or virtually empty.
However the service was very attentive and the food excellent. None of us opted for starters. One of us had the pork fillet and two had the partridge. They advised us that they would be cooked on the bone and therefore a bit pink in the middle, which they should be, and were. Vegetables cooked to perfection.
Desserts were interesting. Two of us had the locally supplied (but not locally produced)cheeses. Very good. My wife opted for the banana tart, not knowing what to expect.
Before this arrived we were presented with a chocolate covered, chocolate mousse, complete with a single candle and Happy Birthday written around the plate in chocolate sauce. I had ordered something - non-specific - online when I booked the table, so didn't know what to expect. A job well done and enough chocolate to start a small factory - extremely rich.
The banana tart was unusual - a sort of banana tarte tatin. Nice pastry but the banana went soft and mushy (as it would) so not very nice.
One other interesting feature. In the corner of the restaurant, in a portion of the old building - a round tower (I guess), is a round room with a round table, set for about 20 - 22 people. This would be ideal for any group of that size - family or business.
Overall I'd give it 4 out of 5.
On a sunny summer evening with a few more customers and more of a buzz it would be excellent.
