Honestly one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Food was excellent but the singing was incredible. Staff friendly, helpful, imformative and genuinely enthusiastic, particularly about opera. Very, very talented. Only problem was when I realised I had been poised with the fork half way to my mouth just captivated by the song! The meal was a birthday... More

Wasn't quite sure how the evening would pan out, but I have to say it exceeded my expectations in every way. Went due to the special offer which is basically a 2 for 1 deal & wow what a great offer.

The food and drink were both good and well priced considering the entertainment provided. Very well thought through - we had plenty of time to choose from the menu, order and talk to our friends (we were a party of 8), and enjoy the excellent music and singing. Friendly service and top class talent. We had been a bit concerned... More
