The food quality and service standard were wonderful but quite pricey. We had a special dinner with friends and the cost was worth it for the experience.

I wouldn't say I was elated by the food, I just thought It was ok. The wine, well we had one from Canada and I wouldn't recommend it and I thought all the other wines were over priced . Our waiter on the other hand was very good.

Fabulous large windows from which to enjoy the lake views, the service was impeccable and friendly, and the food absolutely delicious. We can highly recommend the fallow deer dish, which was cooked medium rare to perfection. A very special and memorable meal in beautiful surroundings.

The restaurant was crowded and not an ideal place for an intimate dinner. The food was good but there is a limited choice on the menu and also rather expensive for what you get. Service was OK but not outstanding.

Had supper here. Reservations are recommended. We asked for a table for 4 at the window and they accommodated us with no fuss or bother. The food was very artistic. The flavours were not to my liking but I could have chosen something else. Lots of unique dishes. The service was as we expected and then some.

Considering the prices of the meals, this was not good value for money. Whilst our waiter was very friendly his service did not match. The overall standard of this restaurant was not what we expected. Whilst the rest of my group enjoyed their appetiser and main meal, mine was very bland. Interesting vegetarian meals don't seem to be on the... More

We ate here because everyone said it was the experience of a lifetime. The food was plentiful and good but not the best we have ever had. The view is great but you get the same view at the bar/restaurant and we enjoyed the food better at that restaurant also.
