Cosy, yes. Fun, absolutely. And the food, well, it was outstanding. A simply lovely time. It is a restaurant like no other we've seen and, from our couple of visits, simply works as a delightful evening.

Lovely intimate little kitchen restaurant. We had read the positive reviews but we're still surprised by the quality offered and elements of theatre presented. Well worth a special trip.

We eat here every couple of months and for special occasions. Small, cozy place with continental feeling. Service always top notch. Limited menu but always delicious and well presented. One of the best restaurants in the region.

Booked for a meal for four. Front of house attentive, pleasant and a 'happy person'. Chef works hard in a small kitchen and you can see everything being prepared. The food was excellent and it's well worth a visit.
