My friend and I went to this restaurant last night and we truly had a very enjoyable meal. Our waiter/ owner looked after us very well. We certainly will be back.

I dined here just before New Year. While I couldn't possibly complain about either the scallops first course or the fillet steak main dish, I did wonder whether the place is losing its identity and is now rather dated.
