The staff was very friendly. The dinner was good. We had a soup and a main dish. Both have been perfectly cooked! The meals have their price, though.

We had a very good dinner at Mint but somehow it didn’t hit the spot. Competent and well presented dishes were a bit bland. Service and ambiance were good but overall there was nothing that lifted it into the ‘excellent’ category that others had reported.
