The restaurant is set up in an old house which has been beautifully refurbished with beautiful lighting, fireplaces and a tin ceiling (could be the original, I'm not sure).

This restaurant is a throwback where dinner is an event, not a sit down and drive it in your guts. Great steaks and bang on wait staff, worth the extra it costs for a special occassion. Love the tin ceiling and three sided fireplace

Excellent ! Classy but cozy. Great service and you can take out meat and seafood. Food is great and steaks are awesome. Desserts are exquisite and entrées are delicious. Wine, porto and drinks of choice, one of the most exclusive in the region. Loved it !
