“Lovely food in out of date surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I have dined here more than a dozen times and I can honestly say that I have never received a bad meal. The seafood is gorgeous, the potato gratin fabulous and the dessert menu is amazing.

However the place needs serious refurbishment to keep its clients as the seats are stained with out of date upholstery. Also the place mats are old and grubby. The staff, in fairness are great and have a good rapport with one another. Please please give the place a lick of paint or some new furniture if you want to avoid losing customers like me who love you food

“Dreadful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

The waiter was very patronizing. We were a large party but we had booked well in advance and we were place in what seemed to be the pass through area where all who entered passed by. The choices on the menu were limited and the actual food was to poor . Actually I was there twice the first time about 25 years ago and not impressed again recently same impression . Given the interval in time won't hold my breath about going back

I found the food fair and atmosphere a bit stuffy for my liking.
