The belly pork, and tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto was delicious. My husband had the salmon done 3 ways as a starter. He said it was one of the best starters he has ever had!

We were a group and had dinner both nights. It was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, both by Dominic and his sous chef who stood in on the Sunday.
