Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was good too. Not sure why it's so expensive but it is in a prime location so that could be it. I would definitely go back.

Food is excellent but expensive and a few dishes are a bit small. A bit unfriendly in that couples are given less time (maximum 90 minutes) to order, drink & eat than people whose table they share if there's 3 or more of them (2...More
