We had an office lunch and the food was excellent. Some very good pasta and fish. Desert was superb. Above all, some genuine and excellent tips from chef Ray which made lunch really good value for money. Worth visiting. Will go again.

Now under new management and is called Sotto Mare. Food was delicious, service was great and the ambience was really nice too. Real value for money. Waiters went out of their way to recommend how food is best cooked, and which dishes taste best.
