“Hoped it would be good.....it was better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Not really sure what I was to find but all The reviews I had seen were pretty good and there still remained a bit of mystique due to no web site. Most impressed from the moment we arrived. More formal than I imagined but not "stuffy". Staff were very attentive but not intrusive, I liked the set menu price and for the standard of all 4 courses it was excellent value, fab wine list and if you didn't want to splurge on the wine, the house was good value. A really great little find....keep it to yourselves!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Having read the reviews we were expecting something special and happy to say we were not in the slightest bit disappointed. It's a nice, cosy restaurant with friendly welcoming staff and an even more impressive chef. Right from the canapés that were served with the aperitifs through to the dessert everything was excellent. So pleased to have finally found a top class restaurant in Ely.

“Eat your heart out Raymond Blanc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We have visited this restuarant on a number of occasions, and have never had an average, let alone poor meal. The staff are very polite, catering for all tastes and allergies (my wife has a lemon allergy), with a relatively small but adequate menu the food is outstanding. If I was able to, I would give it a Michelin star without doubt. Quiet, not too big and attention to detail to the last mouthful. You will not be dissappointed. We cant find another restuarant to come close within 40 miles of it

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Fantastic restaurant. Amazing food, gorgous table ware etc and impeccable service. The wine list is really well put together, with comprehensive descriptions and a good range of prices. Ladies toilet absolutely immaculate. This has to be our favourite restaurant.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I've eaten at this restaurant four times in the past three years and every visit has been superb. The food is outstanding and the wine list well thought through. Service is friendly without being intrusive. Perfect for romantic dinners, special occasions or just an intimate night out. By far the best restaurant within 50 miles, and comparable to the best in London. Book early to get a reservation.
