Excellent cuisine, a mix between local, European and Asian styles. We enjoyed each single meal there, and can only recommend the refreshing meals which were not heavy or fat. Excellent wine list also

Unbelievable! Best food on the South Coast. And a view to die for.They serve a 3 course set menu which turned out to be a 5 course menu. Like in Hartford House the Chef explained and we enjoyed.

Molly the chef surely knows her way around the kitchen, a perfect meal every time presented perfectly. The atmosphere is stunning with live music concerts projected on the wall just sets the right mood for the good food you're about to eat! The service of the staff is wonderful, very friendly and sufficient.
