Nice atmosphere. The food was really good made with fresh products. We had ravioli with truffle, cod and steak. The service was professional. Prices affordable. We would like to return and taste other dishes in the menu.

Only question would be was it Scottish langoustines. I wonder they certainly didn't taste like something that came out of the Minch

A friendly, warm atmosphere in a restaurant centrally located overlooking the river. One of the best meals i have ever had, efficient staff, impecably clean. Love this place, the only downside being the cost, can't afford to come here very often.

We had dinner here and were very pleased with everything about it. Easy walking distance from most hotels. Good varied menu, good wine selection, nice atmosphere and really great service. Reasonably priced for the quality. And the desserts were great!

Didn't have a starter but thought place was very stylish and a lot of space which I like. The service was excellent and my main course was... More

Enjoyable food - service friendly and helpful. Atmosphere could be better - time? money? Almost a higher rating but not quite.
