It is difficult to find a restaurant in this area that compares in all respects with this place. The staff are friendly,the food is consistently good whilst the ambience is near perfection. The recent subtle changes to the grounds and building add to a restaurant that is one of the best in the Golden Triangle area⚡️ A treat anytime whether... More

Fairly expensive for the area but it is really excellent. Staff are really friendly and professional and the owner very hospitable.

It started well. A good welcome and a tasty sardine 'appetiser'. However, the menu could have come from anywhere in Europe and lacked a local flavour. I asked which grilled fish was best and that if it was good then I would take the turbot. I was assured that the turbot was excellent but although not 'off' it was definitely... More

I write very few reviews but I felt compelled as I was blown away tonight by the freshness and quality of the fish I had there. Perfectly cooked - great portion - just right ...

This is one of the dearer restaurants around, not silly prices and overall value for money but it is a treat not a 'go to' restaurant. The service is excellent as is the food and ambiance. If you are looking for a special night out, you will not be displeased here.

We dined at this restaurant last month for our wedding celebration with a party of 12 adults and two little ones. Two of our guests (my in-laws) recommended this place to us as they had visited the year before - well they weren't wrong, this place is amazing! The service was excellent, so attentive, we were welcomed with friendly staff... More

Tomato soup...I LOVE IT...and this was a soup to be etched in my memory...IT WAS GREAT, and it is a long time since the last one I had was as good as this....delicious. The pepper steak was large and well cooked, and I enjoyed it, but most of the time I was thinking about the soup. The pudding was so... More

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant, the previous was two years ago and it's still as wonderful as I remember. I visited on the 20th Oct this time with my partner. We both had the steak, one mushroom and one peppered. The meat was cooked perfectly and both dishes came with plenty of vegetable sides. We... More
