Simple dishes but cooked well. Terribly slow service on not a busy evening. 50 minutes from sitting down to starter, another 50 after finishing started until main course served. Painful. Enjoyable once food did arrive but will not be returning.

Very nice food, waited ages for everything & overpriced, expensive to me for what it was, and we were all still hungry afterwards, glad I went but wouldn’t rush back. The waiter also forgot that he’d put our bottle of white on ice so we...More
