We found this restaurant on a Sunday lunch time after a walk along the river. There were only three other diners in the restaurant at the time so getting a table was no trouble at all. Whilst the interior was nicely decorated unfortunately there weren't any tables with nice views over the river or the square next door. This was a shame as would have made a great experience on the nice day. The restaurant was tidy and clean but with few diners and no music etc meant it lacked some atmosphere.
Our orders were taken promptly by a friendly waitress and drinks arrived quickly. Unfortunately the waiter who brought the rest of the food & drinks wasn't quite as friendly and seemed rather put out to be working.
As a starter we choose some bread and oil to share. This was nice but the bread well over-toasted with burnt edges. The gammon steak and steak burger on the other hand were cooked to perfection and portion sizes plenty-full! Asking whether the burger should be rare or well-done would have really impressed but the tomato sauce in a pot was a nice touch (although I fear the flavour not to everyones taste). Certainly no complaints with the mains and given the sizes there was no need for desert!
It isn't the cheapest of restaurants but with the quality of food the prices would be acceptable, if only they'd make a bit more of the location and atmosphere. When we came to leave it became apparent that there was some outdoor seating, but surrounded by a high wall wouldn't have any scenic view and this is a great shame. In the end it feels like 'any other restaurant' and without all the staff on top form or a great atmosphere the edge was taken off the experience.
