The staff are well trained and very pleasant and attentive. The starters are a little small given the cost. The ambience is very pleasant and relaxing. You should give Fontana a visit.

Had Dinner with friends and was served by the owner/chef, Coleen, a charming and very helpful Canadian lady. The meal was excellent - only problem was there was so much th choose from ! The wine list is equally extensive and reasonably priced. Finally the athomsphere was very relaxed and friendly. Looking forward to a return visit.
