it looks like a little cafe so if i hadnt read the reviews we would have walked past!. it was full but they found us a little table for two on the roof. the food was amazing-slightly on the expensive side-but worth it .

They all said that it was the nicest meal they had ever had. We were so pleased... More

The menu is intense. There seems to be a lot going on on one plate. More suited to dinner in the evening rather than a quick lite bite at lunchtime. There's nothing plain about the menu, a lot going on and quite rich.

Although very busy,the owner asked if we could return in about an hour (which we were more than happy to do, as we wanted to visit a bar or two) On our return we were invited to... More

I've been here on a number of occasions with various people with everybody complimenting the food and the high standards. The lunch time menu is good value for money with plenty of choice. The evening menu is also very good with a great choice of specials. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for quality food... More

I booked after reading the reviews, it was a last minute booking and they were able to fit us in. We had a very warm welcome, excellent service and even better food, would highly recommend this restaurant and if we were ever back in the area we would be sure to eat there again. Fantastic time had.

Have been here on a number of occasions for birthdays and retirement meals and have always had a superb meal. Strangely, my husband and I have always been here in a large group of people, this week it was a group of 24! Food and service is excellent, and testament to this is that every time we have been the... More
