Dropped in for dinner with a party of six. All ordered entree and mains. The Sea bass was beautifully cooked with crisp skin and a side of mussels. Lovely warm atmosphere and attentive staff. Well worth a visit

It's a such a shame you didn't speak with us at the time as we would have welcomed the chance to sort out any issues then and there. We're a bit confused about your comment on the pricing as we've still got the same menu...More
