Food was very good as was the presentation. Menu was original. Everything we took was very good to excellent. The only drawback was the size of the portions. For the price, they were on the small side.

Went there for an event and it was all good. The staff was very attentive and made the culinary experience special. I found it a little bit pricey for what was served. I may go again to see if anything changes in their menu.
