Firstly, I must comment on the staff, who right from the start when making a reservation, were extremely friendly and helpful and this continued throughout the night. We were greeted by the owner who took a genuine interest in each and every guest remembering names etc, even though he was clearly extremely busy with a packed restaurant. I was more than happy with my starter but after tasting my wife's quail, was rather disappointed I didn't go with that, as it was amazing. Then there was the complimentary appetiser soup which was also very tasty and a nice touch. We both went for "The Lady in Red" for our main which along with a side of vegetables was also very tasty and a credit to the chef. Then to my favourite course of any meal...the dessert where my wife had the panna cotta and I opted for the valrhona chocolate soufflé, where I was more than happy to wait the 30 minute bake time as we were being well looked after with drinks and in a pleasant environment with a good atmosphere. It was well worth the wait and they even accommodated my fussy tastebuds with changing what it came with on the menu. It was an amazing meal and evening to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. My wife and I both agreed this was on par, if not better than The Merchant in Belfast and is now our new favourite restaurant.
