Found this restaurant by chance as we were looking for somewhere to eat, hadn't booked a table but the lady managed to find us a table. The food was fantastic and the staff so very nice, couldn't do enough for us would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I have eaten in this restaurant on several occasions but this time it was for her 70th birthday. The booking was for party of 19 very close family and friends of which the majority had not been there before. The evening was a great success, the food as always was excellent, the attention to detail second to... More

This restaurant us tucked away in Paikes street, and as we hadn't booked we were offered a table downstairs, but this was fine. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient. Our meal was the best we have had anywhere for a long time. My husband had the asparagus tartlet with a poached egg and said it was the best starter... More

Lovely laid back restaurant for an informal dinner. Extremely friendly staff and excellent menu, although I think I made the wrong choice of starter - brie parcels did not have quite enough mango and were very slightly greasy. Main course was delicious. Wine was reasonably priced and pretty good. The desserts really took us by surprise - what looked fairly... More

More of a cafe than a resteraunt. Over priced steak that was only average at best. We did enjoy superb service. The mixed reviews lead me to believe it's a lottery what experience you will get, dependant maybe on the day you visit. The table next to us had mussels that looked great. Maybe we got unlucky but I wouldn't... More

I visited because I am a coeliac and this place had been recommended online for us. I was not disappointed. After a friendly chat with one of the waitresses who had a great attitude, the chef himself came outside to the exterior seating to talk to me about catering for me. His attitude too couldn't have been better, very helpful... More

Tucked away up a sidestreet, this restaurant is well worth seeking out. I was taken there for dinner by my wife as a birthday treat and a real treat it was ! The king prawn starter was perfect and as a main, I had probably the best sea bass I have ever eaten. The service is friendly and efficient and... More
