This is a good restaurant but not the easiest place to book and not very friendly. The food is good but the service was slow.

We had dinner here on Tuesday. The food was delicious and not over complicated so the quality flavours came through. A beautiful dining room again uncomplicated but a great atmosphere and a very fair price .A thoroughly relaxed evening. Thank you.
