Went as a family one evening and whilst the starters were delicious the mains lacked taste. However the service was very poor. The waitress was very unenthusiastic and unfriendly and she managed to hand in the wrong order for dessert. Poor value for money and...More

Although a limited menu, they know what they do they do well. A little crowded seating during busy times but great service and food.

Lunch after a tour was just what we wanted. Great service; good portions; lox, salads, drinks topped off a very interesting visit to this nicely done establishment. If only more could be like this!

Stumbled across this and what a wonderful surprise. Lovely setting - tables outside in the courtyard as it was sunny. Excellent service. Delicious eggs benedict and eggs royale. Will definitely go again and highly recommend.
