Wonderful service and setting. We had the stuffed squid, nettle pasta and scallops, along with a salad. The dishes were creative and well prepared. The passion fruit tart was a bit over engineered and dry but overall the meal was very pleasant.

Everything was great except they sat us near a busy doorway. We had the tasting menu which included 6 excellent courses and we had a really good bottle of red wine that was not overpriced. Our server, Pam, was great. We will be back!
