good food and service

I loved my meal here had the rice balls which were beautiful but my partner had the steak and he was disappointed. We did eat late maybe their last service but our waitress was lovely and friendly. Didnt think the restaurant had much atmosphere but generally nice.

This place offers European food and the steak is just perfect! Their dessert selection is yummy. You will need to book in advance coz this place can get full. They accept credit cards too. They are absolutely friendly and professional erg attention to details.

Went for dinner and had a very good meal. Fish of the day was very good. They gave us a small appetizer with compliments of the chef. Service was very good and The meals were served promptly. Desert was also very good. Lovely atmosphere with parking on the street outside. Would definitely return.

The rose by the glass was exceptional, as was the syrah ... and the food was beautiful. The eye fillet for hubby was a beautiful piece of meat, and my chicken special was divine. Wait staff full of energy even though the place was packed on a Monday night.
