What a delightful place! Wonderful friendly waiting staff and owner, sumptuous food and a great ambience. We were spolied for choice with the menu but the waiter had no problem in gently guiding our choices towards dishes that we both thoroughly enjoyed. I wish I lived closer as I think this would be a regular visit for us.

Visited with my partner and a friend. I'm always open minded and when visiting new places and try to see the best. I couldn't find anything that stood out in this restaurant. Food was o.k'ish. Furniture was uncomfortable, service was adequate! That's about it I'm afraid!

I found the staff to be very good without being overpowering, the food was excellent, well cooked and well presented. There were not many folk in at the the time and I am sure if there were more clients the ambience would be very good.

A rather warm evening for menopausal women but they kindly provided a fan which cooled us down. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty.
