The seafood platter was very nice. My wife had the risotto smoked haddock, which had no fish and looked more like beet risotto. The flavour was good. The restaurant was not busy and the meals took long enough to suggest everything was fresh.

Excellent starter, the lamb and a spectacular seafood platter for main course. Only drawback was another table with at least 12 men celebrating their pal’s birthday. What a noise. After they left, it was very pleasant. I will definitely return. Hope no more birthdays around.
