The Square was our second choice behind SeaDrift which was full. We were squeezed in by the friendly staff - the ambience is a little stuffy and generally the feeling here is that the restaurant is really a little better than it really is.
The menu is varied and local and the wine list decent. It isn't cheap but the food is decent enough - we enjoyed a delicious meal but it isn't quite as good as it thinks it is.
The staff were a little inattentive - e.g. we shared bread and olives to start and this hadn't been cleared when the main course arrived. There were numerous delays in taking orders and delivering food - that said it was busy and we were squeezed is so I was delighted to get a seat.
If they could lose the delusions of grandeur it would be top notch, as it is it's very very good
