We had a booking for 9.30 (fireworks time) and arrived 20 mins early. Very busy but very relaxed bar area. We got a drink and watchd the fireworks from the balcony outside as table service and dinning stops for the fireworks. Once they were over and the tables cleared we were seated for 10pm. If you have plans for later let the waitress know and they will do their best to accomodate you. Our daughter was meeting us in reception so we were on a schedule but not rushing.
Unless you are a high roller or enjoy looking at expensive world wines don't look at the big wine list. Other wines by the glass or bottle are on the main menu. I can recommend the Rioja, almost chewable.
The food is wonderful and save room for dessert. Our waitress couldn't be more helpful and if you want to take the Mickey table sparkles just tell her :-)
All in all five star. Only minor comment would be slow bar staff but hey it's only their second day open.
