The four main courses ordered followed after a brief period, the fish was absolutely delicious and really was the best I have ever had. The four meals and drinks were not cheap... More

The staff were lovely and attentive, the food was great, and we easily booked the same day. There is also free parking which is really helpful as parking can be hard sometimes. Works go again :)

The place looks great, has good service and atmosphere but the food was not good enough. We ordered a Rib-eye and salmon. The Rib-eye was overcoooked and the salmon even more so. If they could improve a bit in the kitchen then this restaurant could easily get a 5 star review but unfortunately not this time.
