Great food, but on our visit the staff were clearly having some communication problems, which reduced our experience from 5/5 to 4/5 Great tasty food , good friendly staff, but basic errors in service, reduce our rating from 5 to 4.

You don't have to ask twice where to go for fine dining. This is top of the line restaurant for dining. It's a special and every bit worth your time to stop.
