I'd probably rate our experience as 3.5 but it just wasn't quite good enough for a 4. We dined on a lovely, sunny Sunday evening. There were two other couples and a Belgian family of 5, all tourists like us. I think the restaurant has a lot to be thankful for from Trip Advisor reviews, which is why I wanted to give a little more balance. Our starters, the scallops, were very tasty but the (free) bread and breadsticks offered beforehand were dire. Perhaps they were so stale because it was Sunday and no one had been baking that day. But in which case, serve nothing rather than stale leftovers. Our mains were mixed: the pork cutlets were plentiful but one was dry, the other succulent. My husband's steak was overcooked but he did ask for it 'medium well'. It's a challenge to get it cooked so there's no pink but without it becoming tough, and this was not a successful example. The desserts though were absolutely wonderful - coconut pannacotta with chargrilled pineapple and passion fruit sorbet was light and soft and tart and sweet all at the same time, whilst my husband thoroughly enjoyed his cranachan on a brandy snap basket. The service was very attentive and unobtrusive and the ambience was pleasant, looking out onto the river and the setting sun. I would enjoy dining there again but would perhaps select different mains - the fish for other diners looked wonderful.
