“Nice romantic spot near the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Lamb was rated with highest culinary award for 2012 and it did not disappoint. Tender, juicy and full of flavor. Make sure to make reservations to get choice seating

Went for dinner with friends, the food was lovely. Everyone enjoyed their meals however portion sizes are on the small side and it is expensive.

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Had lunch here recently and certainly had no complaints. It's not the cheapest restaurant in Hamilton by any means but you do get quality and the service was excellent and personal.
