“Fantastic food and evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Superb food, great menu, fantastic service - attentive without being intrusive. We also had the table for a set time slot, but we weren't rushed and felt relaxed. The food is brilliant, with a great menu and loads of specials. Would thoroughly recommend, definitely going back!!

“Not one to miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I LOVE this restaurant. It's always busy so book well in advance, the food is stunning; beautifully presented and always delicious. The service is excellent, very friendly and always attentive but not too much. They always have interesting specials which covers all 3 courses and at times drinks too.

“Always good food, service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Party of six and everyone of us had an excellent meal. The service is outstanding, as is the food.
Only problem is you need to book the restaurant well in advance as it is always fully booked.
