We visited last night as a family, the service was very good and the food equally as good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I had the Makrell to start and the Beef Medallions for main. The beef was beautiful, melted like butter in the mouth!... More

Went for a relaxed meal with 2 friends. We have enjoyed lovely food here previously and were very disappointed this time - we wondered whether the chef has left or was replaced for our visit? The food is very expensive for what it is and a couple of the dishes were poor. A friend had the asian duck starter and... More

This restaurant in an old bank building has been a disappointment on several occasions. It is less clean than it should be, tends to get noisy when busy, and the food has only been adequate, especially for the price.

There were 21 of us. We arrived on time - a great table in a striking room with even more striking artwork on the walls. First thing that hit me was the welcome, friendliness and fun shown by the waiting staff. Great drinks from a good wine, beer and cocktail menu. Service continued to be excellent and food - starters,... More

We went on a Sunday for a roast. Walking in, the decor is looking slightly tired- the fake flowers on the tables looked cheap and were unnecessary. The booth we had looked a bit grubby with food crumbs / stains on the seats. We didn't opt for a starter but the main course was lovely- I had roast cut of... More
