The quality of the food and it's presentation was excellent. In particular the starters we had of the tuna salad and green peppers were outstanding and different. The downside was that the overall cost of the meal was more than the average and the price...More

Service was very good and prompt. We both had fish dishes, (the trout and the salmon), both of which were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Reasonable price and nice ambiance.

I was a bit concerned about meeting a business colleague at the restaurant last night based on reports of it being very noisy. Was pleasantly surprised that noise was a non-issue in the dining, perhaps because we arrived at 7 and the crowds were thinning...More

We had a group of 5 and everyone had a great meal. Creative and delicious. Homemade pasta with pumpkin seed pesto was full of flavor. Roasted chicken on the bone so tender and tasty. Outside patio on a gorgeous night. And exotic drinks. Yum.

The atmosphere is great. Big space with lots of different rooms. Good bar selections and excellent service. Food was good and just perfect in size. Trout was really excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating above the street so fairly quiet.
