Tasty food, okay venue (fake flowers but tables not too close together). Veggie options limited to one starter and one main course. Danny made it worth visiting with his infectious personality and enthusiasm. Would visit again because of him when we're back in the area....More

Nice reception on the phone when booking a table, and when we entered the restaurant. Very friendly. Simple but chic decor. Smallish menu but enjoyed everything we ate. All seemed very fresh and summery in appearance and on the palate. Returning very soon.
