As soon as we arrived staff were very attentive, Alex showed us to our table and was quick to offer us water and drinks.

Bearing in mind there were 2 other people in the restaurant, the service was slow. Staff forgot simple things like stake knives and orders that never appeared. The food was disappointing, over seasoned and pretentious. The starters were bland and my desert dry and tasteless. The only good thing was the steak, which was cooked as ordered and tasted great.

The fish finger sandwich at £11.50 was undercooked, the batter was raw inside, with grease dripping from it and the fish inside was Luke warm. I asked for it in brown bread and it came in cheap...

The restaurant is on the 4th floor of the Hilton Hotel with a good view of Brayford Wharf. We were a party of 6 for Lunch, all having something different, the food, service and quality were all extremely good. A great choice for a family get together.

My wife and I have been to many cocktail bars in my life and this one is great! As I arrived I was a little confused on where to go but a very friendly member of staff pointed out the lift for the bar and restaurant. The lift is made of glass giving a beautiful view of the pool as... More

We were welcomed with a big smile and made to feel special from the minute we walked through the door, starters, mains and desserts were out of this world, the pork trio main course was one of the best I have had, I will definitely be returning, The handmade cocktails in the bar are a must if you just want...

I came with some friends Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my friends. Chilled environment, good wine list and pleasent service. I had scallops and brisket which were excellent. Definitely be back in the new year.
