I must thank Josie and her male colleague for their attentiveness and consideration. Having read previous reviews, I struggle to understand how seating could be an issue, given I attended on a Wednesday evening (not busy). Upon reaching the top of the stairs, we were seated promptly. I do wonder if it isn't perhaps as obvious as it could be, that the restaurant is in fact, on the top floor?
I can understand the comments regarding portion size but then again, I hadn't eaten all day, apart from a slice of toast. Even so...not so sure that my friends would agree, because we ended up ordering another 'tapas' style menu from the bar, after our main meal.
Now let's put this in perspective:
There is a limited menu, but I prefer that to an establishment that purports to be able to cook in excess of fifty dishes, all "freshly prepared" etc.
Because none of the 'starters' appealed to everyone, we were informed that we could avail of the smaller samples on the menu that were usually served in the bar downstairs. Excellent. Only problem being that there was an odd number of us and the servings came in, two by two lol. Then again, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to go outside of the menu, as it were.
The rib eye steak is 8oz but looks like 4oz (boo). Josie insured that she fully understood the cooking requirements of all who ordered steak and she got it right; yes the kitchen did too.
Again I have to agree with previous reviewers regarding portion size, because it is on the small size.
I would not hesitate in praising Josie, who made every effort to ensure that we were happy. In fact I would go as far as saying that both she and her colleague went above and beyond what would be expected of them and I remain very grateful.
On the way out, we all noticed the open fire by the bar and if anything, that sums up the welcome, the service and the comfortable way that this establishment is run.
