“Gem. Highest recommendation”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Three of us ate recently, none of us easily pleased, and complete thumbs up. The menu was interesting and we ordered three different courses each. Succulent prawns, marinated beef, crisp vegetables, delicate salads all perfect and in decent portions. We even had a 'hard to find' wine from the Spanish region of Toro. Incredible value. Amazing staff that couldn't do enough but were nonintrusive. Definitely worth a detour!

“Great Ambience”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Small intimate restaurant in Douglas, menu is varied, lots to choose from
and service was very good . Definitely book before hand as this place is very popular and you may be disappointed if you arrive without booking a reservation.

“small is friendly”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

For a small restaurant they provide a lovely and varied menu. It is such an intimate atmosphere that at any stage you can just turn and chat to the waitress. I really look forward to going there.
