New owners, fantastic new menu made to feel so welcome by Antonio and Rachel. We really enjoyed the fish soup and the modern way it was served, and what a delight to be served a zucchini flower with the main fish course.

Lovely setting both inside and out. More pricey than the average establishment but worth it. The service and welcome are also quality. Good place to celebrate a special occasion.
