“Average place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Not bad food but prices are not justified. Outrageously priced wine list. Good selection of "value" wines with 400% margin. Not the most welcoming staff. A whole lot of much better places for the same price around. And you need to pay just a little bit more and get to Alber 1er which is absolutely great.

“Quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We enjoyed our meal here. Generous portions from an interesting menu which was well prepared..
The service is very attentive......almost too much so! It was exhausting and distracting watching the staff buzzing about the restaurant (serving tiny drops of wine every few minutes into our glasses!) so it was not an entirely relaxing evening.

“Lovely evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Had a lovely evening here with my husband. Both had the set menu which was very reasonable price. I had home made black pudding to start which was delicious and then beef fillet with truffle mash which was also very good. The cheese board as you would expect was fabulous and then there was a selction of deserts from a buffet which was anice touch. The service was good and very friendly and overall very good value for money.
