We were walk-ins and were sat right away. The restaurant was lovely as it looked over a canal. The food was good, but my favorite part of the meal was the chocolate plate.

I was a customer but it is advertised as a seafood restaurant. I suggest you try and find a restaurant that caters for your specialist needs?
