We ate here twice, on successive evenings. We went back the second time because it was very good. Service was pretty good but waiting times did extend quite a bit after 8pm so arriving at opening time would avoid this. Getting the bill took too long but not a major issue.

During a thunder storm we quickly looked for a family friendly restaurant and luckily stumbled across here. We had a warm welcome and lovely food. The boys 8 & 14 loved their pasta dishes and our food was faultless. Hubby loved the Steak special on that night. The tiramisu is gorgeous!

Great restaurant with good selection from salads to large dinners. We had huge dinner salads and dessert. Salads were simply delicious and very filling. Wines recommended were also quite good. Nice atmosphere where the waiter/waitress is actually friendly and helpful.
