Can highly recommend this place - might be necessary to book in advance - we were lucky enough to grab a couple of seats at the bar; the place was busy. The staff were lovely and our food was really superb.

It's so good that I'd split the group in half and take two tables, and pay two checks. There's always a way!!! It's worth it!!! Can't wait to get back there in September!!
