“Very impressive”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

6 of us ate here for a special birthday and all were impressed by the decor, service, food and drinks.

The lamb was perfect, sweet potato arrived cold but was soon replaced. All other meals were very enjoyable and the cocktails were divine.

Staff were friendly and service was swift.

We will definitely return.

“Fabulous evening.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We have been here a few times just for drinks in the bar, always impressed with the style and atmosphere, so we booked dinner for my daughter's 21st. We were not dissapointed. We started with cocktails in the bar, the bartender made drinks that weren't even on the menu. Then on to the food, we all started on fish, two soft shell crab, one scallops and one oysters, superb flavors and seasonings, cooked perfectly. Mains, suckling pork belly, cannon of lamb, roasted monkfish, and fillet steak with about five side dishes, again some unusual flavors in all the dishes, really nice. My wife and daughter shared a mango souffle. The quality and service through the whole evening was outstanding.

“Delicious food and wonderful cocktails!”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

Visited on Thursday 21st November, buzzing atmosphere. Helpful friendly staff! (The DJ and reception girls liked to stand around doing nothing chatting to each other,looking rather unprofessional, but everybody else were fab)!

The food is LUSH and not over priced. I highly recommend the duck it's out of this world. And try as many cocktails as you can they're all amazing. My personal favourite is the pornstar martini.

Save room for dessert or you'll be disappointed when you see someone else eating one! (Chocolate soufflé!) baked from scratch worth the wait!
