Dinner for 4 on a Friday night, table at 20:15. All the staff were friendly and working hard (except one who just wandered round in circles, honestly). We were seated quickly and given menus, we had to grab a waitress to order drinks, then we ordered food, then we waited for the drinks and some water for the table. We... More

Ate here on a Thursday afternoon, place was quite busy considering it was halfway between lunch and dinner. Service was very good, quick and efficient and didn't rush us when we wanted a bit more time to order, so impressed with that. As for the food, we both ordered one of their special fillet steaks, both came as ordered so... More

Great steak restaurant and pianist just not as good as Gaucho. Would certainly visit again. Chips in a mini deep fat frying basket a bit naff.

Had a good night here. Had oysters which were great and a tasty ribeye steak. Onion ring portion of 4 onion rings abysmal although tasty. All polished off with a nice Malbec.

Brilliant grill style restaurant in the city centre. I have visited here on numerous occasions now and will definitely keep coming back! The restaurant itself is modern but welcoming, and the staff are excellent! Really could not fault the service that we received from them! The bar has a large choice of cocktails to choose from and the bar staff... More

Totally and pleasantly thrown by reception, personally (Aimee absolutely my type that I'll never have).Apart from that a decent menu bought to you in top service. Took the wrong nibbles, in my case, bread with oil and a garlic bulb! But the service for what it's worth impeccable. Thank u to Aimee, Sally & Gary.

Enjoyed an outstanding meal on a Saturday evening. Reception staff were very welcoming & showed us to our table after only 5 mins. The restaurant was very busy but our waitress was very attentive and made us feel welcome. She also made us aware of what "specials" were available. The food was exceptional. All fresh & very well presented &... More
