Had an evening meal with some friends - food was very good especially the fish dishes, and the location next to the canal is lovely. Service was good and very friendly, somehow the indoor dining area lacks a bit of atmosphere but overall we had a great evening.

Service was a bit lacking as the waiter could not offer any advice on the wine menu we couldn't find one that suited us so we ended up with a soft drink ,I asked the waiter... More
