Had a very enjoyable meal here. Menu choice is not that vast but there is something for everyone and the food is freshly cooked. The oysters were fresh, the food well presented, the service very good. Not cheap but we’d go again.

We went here on our first night. We all had Black Angus fillet steak which was lovely. The desserts looked amazing but we were full. Don’t go here if you are on tight budget.
