We chose the Haggis, which is exceptional,especially with the whisky,uniquely served at the table by Raff. We then had the Sous Vide Steak which was so tender... More

I am never one to complain but i feel for the money you... More

As always St Helenas never fails to impress. Raff, Frank and all the staff do an amazing job at making us feel special and the service is impeccable. Special thanks must also go to Ben (Head chef), for his amazing talents in preparing beautiful dishes, cooked to perfection. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and cant wait to go back.
