On the first night the food and the recommended wine was exceptionally good as was our waitress. 5* without a doubt! But on the second occasion my sister's salmon and additional serving of vegetables, both from à la carte menu were... More

Ours was a large party but nothing was too much bother for staff. The food was gorgeous, ambience very chilled and the staff were lovely. Whilst you do pay for good food, we thought it was well worth it. We'll definitely be back.

I had the chicken and risotto. It was the juiciest chicken I ever had. But my husband didn't enjoy his steak, he said it was tough... More
