This highly rates restaurant has been around for some years and always rates well in food guides. The food is of good variety and excellent presentation, albeit can be expensive but still affordable for a special night out.

Very nice food and great service. The paella is a 40 minute wait, but worth waiting for. We were the only diners. We were treated very well and not rushed at all. Be wary of the time limit parking out the front!

A terrific special night restaurant. You are spoilt with the service and the quality of the food. I had the scallops and the steak and my friend the calamari and the duck breast. All were exceptionally good. I've recomended this place to other people.
