As a foodies we were totally happy to find this restaurant. Among the restaurants serving everything fried as the chips and defrost fried whatever this restaurant stands for a modern progressive concept. We sat next to the open kitchen window where we could see the chef's final checking. Food was totally delicious and artistic. I wasn't really happy with the... More

Ate in the Little Yard tapas restaraunt last night. Had a lovely window table. Service was very good. Tapas lovely especially the mushroom croquettes. Desert was to die for....Sticky Ginger Pudding & Jaffa Cake Icecream, absolutely fab. High recommended for couples or small groups. Hopefully will get to use the outside tables, over the Summer.

We just called in here by chance as we were staying in Whites Hotel. The quality of the food here is out standing, really really good. Very well done to the chefs ;)...the waiting staff seem to be in a race, most of them zooming around, don't think there is any need for it. "Calm down people" but they are... More

Went here last night & had the early bird menu which was excellent value. I had the steak frites which was huge & delicious, my husband had the supreme chicken which he also said was fantastic. The desserts were also amazing, could hardly move when we left!!!! The service & atmosphere was wonderful and would definitely recommend a visit here.

Visited this restaurant with friends over the weekend and was so impressed. The menu was so diverse with something for everyone. The food was so tasty and such good value. My only issue was that the portions are a bit big and as the food was so good I couldn't help myself, and wasn't fit for dessert!! Worth a visit.
