Lovely restaurant, food was fabulous and the waitresses were excellent, just the right amount of attentiveness! We happened to bump into Aileen (Tom Crean's granddaugher) in the corridor which was a great treat. She was extremely friendly and a pleasure to meet. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
