We booked as there was a party of 7 plus little one in a high chair on a Saturday and the food was excellent as usual. We were early but the staff soon sorted our table and were attentive and friendly. The strawberry blonde mojito s went down very well!

The fantastic food more than made up for the awful weather. Complimentary cocktails and wine were also good. The service from all the staff was super.
