Everything is meticulously made and a true food tasting experience. There is a food-wine pairing menu or you can pair it yourself. Service was wonderful - attentive and engaging when needed, and giving you time and space to enjoy your meal in peace when that is what you want. Cannot recommend more highly!

Recommend that you book this restaurant in advance as it has limited capacity. Very pleasant staff and attentive. The wines are quite expensive but the food is excellent. I had the lobster starter and was pleasantly surprised by the portion. My one complaint is that the pricing on the menu is confusing as we only wanted two courses and this... More

Second visit but this time with my husband and his expectation was high because of my high praise after my first visit and I am delighted to say I was not let down! Food was excellent, the cocktails superb and the super duper Jonathan looked after us so very well - we booked our table for a late lunch and... More

What can I say wrong about this place? I can't, such a wonderful meal could not fault. They could get more seating in but haven't so your not sitting on top of the table beside you. Great not having to listen to the table beside you. Gave time between each course, came away having ate enough but not feeling stuffed.... More

Let me be clear this is not the cheapest restaurant in Bangor but it serves incredibly good food. The lunch prices are a lot more affordable than dinner. I had the lobster salad to start and a tofu salad for the main. Both courses arrived and the presentation was immaculate. I am normally worried at this stage that too much... More
