We visited the restaurant in June 2015 based solely on the reviews that had been left, it seemed like we were in for an exceptional time - sadly it was not to be. To begin with we were not offered a wine or drinks list, which is a very basic first port of call. the staff were friendly enough -... More

How anyone can write a 1 star review for this restaurant completely baffles me. Anibal was really upset because he has very high standards which we have experienced over many visits. Keep doing what your are doing Anibal and ignore such reviews Sandra & Cowley Ryan
