Came here with my other half on our anniversary and was not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service very friendly and personal and the setting very intimate and cosy. A perfect evening out.

Went here for a Romantic dinner with my partner and had a lovely evening The staff were very attentive and very polite. We also had nice private seats upstairs where it isn't as busy. The food was really delicious and thoroughly enjoyed it. Have been back a few times since and will continue to do so!

Always great meal, prob go 2 or 3 times a year, with friends and we always let's go somewhere different but never do as so nice! Very small restaurant and very popular, so booking essential. If you have mobility probs ask for a table downstairs. X

This small restaurant looks like the restaurant in 'Love Actually when Colin Firth proposes to the Portugese lady. We love going. The food is always delicious and the service good. A particular favourite with my sons is the mixed grill.
