“problem free xmas lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I had lunch with 6 friends from the xmas set menu. All the food was great - the two courses with the main slightly smaller than usual were just the right amount for lunch. The service was fine - a bit slow with the wine but that was the only thing. It was very full and we were still served in good time. the view is fantastic, as others have said, and the blue green decor complements it beautifully. Also is it so nice to go to a restaurant with actual tablecloths and upholstered comfortable chairs instead of the more trendy looking but uncomfortable cafe style chairs.

“Not just for the food and service, but the view is just spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This restaurant has been my favourite for many years. I save the experience for a special occasion and am never disappointed. The service is excellent, as is the food and wine. But the view from the windows is the best I have ever seen anywhere in the world!

“best dinner I've had in a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We had an amazing time for this dinner. The staff were beyond helpful and food was excellent. I had scallops as entree and Beef for dinner. Sometimes in places like this they skimp, but not here. I had beautiful scallops, best I've ever eaten. The beef was also so delicious, and it came with asparagus and some potato side. I was actually full when we finished. The wine was great too. My husband had a lamb entree and salmon main, and it was cooked to perfection. Honestly, this was the best birthday dinner I've ever had - even without the AMAZING view it would have been just fantastic.
