The exchange is excellent and never fails. Super busy we went at 530 and already busy. Menu super comprehensive and will keep everyone happy. Service a little slow.

Ate here with friends for dinner. They sat our group of 12 quickly. They have a bar with a good variety of drinks. The food was excellent with a varied menu. Everyone loved their meal. I would eat here again.

We had a short wait for our table but were lucky to find a seat near the bar before being shown to our table. Service is excellent and I particularly enjoyed the salmon on a pea and prawn risotto.
