My wife and I enjoyed a super meal which entirely lived up to the menu description. Our waitress was both attentive and helpful in selecting the courses.
Two gripes however, although I understand about ambiance the restaurant was far too dark, at least where we were sat. We needed a torch to read the menu, although in our sixties we do not suffer with failing eyesight, but the lack of light was also another factor. The saying that you eat with your eyes before your mouth, was never tested more here than anywhere. Instead of my very pleasant schnitzel I could have been eating boiled mutton for all the visual appeal, I mark them down for this!
Finally although we had booked for 8.30 our table was not ready until 9.15 thus we were almost forced to wait at the bar. Well the wine prices for what amounted to, by any standards "a dirty glass" in terms of volume, were extortionate. The only construction that I can put on this behaviour is to obtain the greatest amount of money from their customers as is practically possible
