“My favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Excellent food, excellent ambience and Jenny is a wonderful host - nothing is too much for her. I would high recommend this restaurant to everyone and to those of you who have never been - you have no idea what you are missing out on!

“Just Love Everything About This Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The best ever food I ever tasted. This is a little gem: romantic; stylish; relaxed and friendly. It just hugs you the minute you enter it and it loves you and cares for you and treasure you. I always leave this restaurant enchanted!

Stunning!!!! Absolutely stunning. You have got to try it. The food is brilliant. The service is great. The atmosphere is fantastic. I have never been disappointed here. Jenny is a wonderful host and runs a tight ship. Attention to detail is wonderful. Go try it yourself.

“They don't really live up to their promisse”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went there two times only, for the "special" prawns dish. The prawns are OK but the service and atmosphere leave a lot to desire. There is no willingness to make the customer welcome, the waiters only want to "get rid" of you... And the number of prawns on the "special" has decreased while the price went up... Not worth going.
