Mussels to start were of a plenty, could have been main course, well cooked with just enough tomato based sauce without drowning them, no pun intended. The trio mixed grilled fish was excellent, salmon, tuna and sea bass... More

My veal with cream and mushrooms was absolutely smothered a very synthetic tasting "yucky" sauce with no resemblance to a proper veal a la creme. I think that the chef confused quantity with quality. I shall not return.

About 20 of us had an early evening meal here and we had an enjoyable evening. The staff were attentive and we liked the different style of paper hats / novelties on the table (not crackers). The food was delicious and a good choice so there was something for everyone. One member of staff has problems with gluten and she... More
