“High End Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Despite its unlikely location this is a restaurant well worth visiting. We have been there as a family for Sunday lunch a number of times and the service and food have always been excellent, high end dining indeed!

“Great restaurant in unexpected location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

This restaurant is well worth seeking out. Slightly off the beaten track and with a very retro vibe inside - the food and service were faultless. The menu was mouth watering and made chossing quite difficult. Will be back.

“terible service and terrible food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

My wife and I went to this restaurant after reccomendations from friends. My wife was very pregnant at the time and when her salmon arrived it was very raw. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she went to the chef with the salmon. To our suprise the salmon was returned to our table without being cooked and with a comment from the chef "that is the way salmon is supposed to be"!! we were utterly digusted by the lack of service and teh way we were made to feel like we were in the wrong. We are the paying customers and expect a little more courtesy than that.
We consequently we not be returning to this restaurant and have told our friends of our experience and they are also surprised and disgusted in our treatment.
