Used a groupon voucher to eat at this restaurant in the summer. Was pleasantly surprised. It was very quite, dispite there being a sold out show at the theatre over the road there was only us and one other table in. Food was very fresh...More

The food was a little bland, the service was fine, the bill (as it was a groupon) was fair. There were a lot of small flys in the restaurant and I would not pay the full price for the food. I probably won't go back.
