I brought me girlfriend here for their Valentines evening dinner and wine tasting event. which was a unique and exquisite experience that both of us enjoyed. The food and wines were gorgeous and having a bit about each of wines explained to us was a lovely touch that topped off a wonderful experience. The decor and atmosphere in the place... More

We stopped for a quick bite before a show and were happy with everything. Staff are polite and very efficient. Food and drinks brought to the table fast and was good, especially the chillie sweet potatoes. The restaurant and bar are nicely decorated. We'll go back

We stopped by for dinner at this elite restaurant. The staff are very helpful, amicable and meet you with a smile. We made reservation because it was busy on Friday night. The food is very well prepared, very tasty and of quality. Will visit again.

While visiting Epic Ireland we called to Ely for lunch. Having never visited it before we were very impressed. We were shown our seats down in the cellar areas, it is beautiful set out with plenty of people eating. It appears to attracts a lot of young white collar office workers from the local financial centres. The food was good... More

Went here for business lunch twice in the last 3months the menu is usually the same a bit over priced for what you get but service is fast efficient and professional. Good for business lunch and they do a great wine tasting event every couple of months. Would recommend fish and chips, maybe avoid the Thai fish curry!

Lovely restaurant down in the vaults. Very unusual setting. Attentive staff and great food. We had lunch there and my prawn noodles were delicious. Would be good for office party or family celebration as there are lots of big tables and oodles of space between them.

Had our Christmas lunch here with work and I can't fault it. The food is fantastic, the wine selection is endless and the restaurant in the basement area is just lovely. It's looks like an old cellar or something. Staff are very good and efficient too. For a 2/3 course set lunch menu you can't go wrong at the great... More

Ate here in the run up to Christmas with colleagues. The building is interesting, it's located in an old cellar, all done up, it creates a lovely atmosphere. Food was good, I had a fish dish. Service was excellent. I will certainly go again, a positive experience.

Went with 20+ coworkers and had a great evening. Good menu, everyone found something to their liking and we were all pleased with our choices. No complaints. Service was very good, location and decor is different, in a good way and overall it was a memorable evening. Well worth a return visit.
