An excellent restaurant with great staff, a very good menu with extremely well cooked food. Restaurant is small which did create a very nice atmosphere. We were not in a rush however it took one hour between arriving and receiving our first course. Some people may not mind the wait if having a drink. Booking in advance is a must.

lovely atmosphere, food and service. The picture makes the food look less appealing than it truly was. Go and have fun there.

Four of us for lunch for mums birthday. Food was really lovely. I had the fish platter which was cooked perfectly and super tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly. A really nice place that's a wee bit special. Perfect for a lunch time occasion.

We asked for a wine recommendation, it was delicious and not overly pricey. We were treated to a small appetiser, then shared a starter of antipasti with... More
