The food and service and atmosphere is really good here, and the menu selection also above average. We had a great night out with the kids.

We were a table of 12. They were keen to get drinks to the table, but were slow to take our meal orders. The starter helpings were generous, I have the Ceasar salad which was a meal in itself. The steaks were all cooked as requested from "Blue" to Well done. The meat was tender and most enjoyable. I did... More

The menu has excellent variety for every taste and they have a very competent wine selection. The service is very good as well.... More

I use to live in the Hillcrest area about five years ago but I’m now settled in the UK. On a recent visit back 'home'; we had dinner here with friends. It was very enjoyable! We got a friendly welcome; the service was surprisingly quick as they were very busy, the food was tasty and cooked perfectly. The general atmosphere... More

Standards are consistent. Always excellent steaks and above average service. One criticism is the quantity of the (excellent) sauces. Just silly for the price.
