We stopped in for lunch on a very cold afternoon. It was very clean and modern. The menu was appealing to us, so we ordered lunch. Bar and restaurant were virtually empty but we were not well taken care of. The server was cold, to say the least. We waited an extremely long time for anyone to take our drink... More

We had a pleasant time having dinner here. It is across from the Mercure Hotel. The atmosphere is airy and modern. We all ate the scallops which were good but some were overcooked. They were on potatoes with spinach and there were dried onions on top. The staff was really pleasant. The music for my tastes was too loud.

Enjoyed a superb family birthday meal. Wide range of dishes. Tuna and Sea bass dishes were very tasty. Steak Pie had big chunks of juicy steak.....and the chicken stuffed with haggis in a whisky sauce was delicious. Good portions but we just managed sweet. Bobo's brownies are a must....highly recommended. The staff gave five star service and the surroundings were... More

I attended a works Christmas dinner recently and unfortunately, was seated right beside the door which meant I got an icy blast every time the door was opened. I thought it would be ok once the diners were all in and seated but forgot about the people who have to go out for a smoke continuously..... The food was average,... More
