Nice decor, friendly atmosphere and the food is pretty good too! We opted for two courses after pre dinner drinks and also ordered a bottle of wine.

By the end of the evening I wished that I'd gone to the Italian Restaurant... More

We enjoyed our first visit so much we returned 2 days later. On both occasions the service was friendly & efficient & the food delicious. One of the specials was sea bass which was beautifully cooked. We also tried a carpaccio of beef with parmesan shavings & rocket (lovely), veal with a tomato sauce (changed from a cream sauce at...

Visited on a week night, the food is pretty standard and slightly more expensive than local chains such as Prezzo or Pizza Express. Service was a bit to brisk as we like to relax and found the restaurant a bit cramped.
