We did not book but were greeted warmly by the host who was friendly and helped us with the menu. I choose slow cooked roast pork belly and my husband choose the chicken breast very dry and overcooked ( I expected that to maybe have crackling but it was a rubbery skin) Both our plates were cold when they arrived...

We have dined at this restaurant 4 or 5 times in the past but not recently. We had very mixed feelings from previous visits but this time no complaints. The food was delicious and the service and presentation excellent. Also quite an extensive menu incorporating seafood, pasta, steaks etc. I certainly will be coming back again. Well done.
