Beautiful setting and great food

The meat was superb, the service was impeccable and the setting beautiful. I hope the opportunity will come along to dine there again. Highly recommended.

We saw it on TripAdvisor so we thought we'd try it out. Yummy ribs, delicious garlic bread seriously. Staff were very friendly, accomodating and attentive. Also a lovely view. We'll be back again....really enjoyable dinner experience!

We ate here recently. The ambiance is very nice, clean, and modern. The food is pretty good too but the best thing to eat here is the ribs. We each ordered something different and each thing was pretty good but my daughter ordered ribs and are them like it was her last meal. I tried one and was very impressed.... More
