We were taken into the bar area (to the right) for a drink and canapes which as you would expect were very nice. It was then a 7 course taster menu (choice of 2-4 items each course) in the restaurant area for €80pp. We declined... More

There were 8 adults and three impeccably behaved kids (aged 7, 2 and 1). I will confess I was very apprehensive about taking the kids and was... More

Rest period in between each course was perfectly timed. Dining room was beautifully and luxurious, yet warm and comfortable with a very relaxed atmosphere. The bar area was... More

A birthday treat for my fiancee. The variation in food was entertaining to say the least. Staff were impeccable and friendly. The wine tasting was a very positive addition to our meal.
