Anyway I paid the bill and left but started to realise lated that I'd been over charged... More

Found this restaurant while walking around looking for somewhere to have a steak dinner. We were given a very nice window table even although we did not have a reservation. The meal was a little slow to arrive but nothing too serious. The meal itself was delicious, just what we were looking for. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive... More

Booked a table for Saturday lunch the night before, confirmed on the phone by a very nice gentleman who worked at the restaurant only to get there and be told that there was no lunch on and no bookings had been made either way. The lady who we spoke too was very rude and dismissive about our situation and didn't... More

I can't comment on the food as we didn't get to try it because they had no record of the booking I had make the previous evening. The woman who dealt with us was very rude and couldn't wait to get us out of there quickly enough.
