We were lucky to get a table on a Saturday evening. Place was full and had great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and quick. Maybe a bit too quick (running much!). We all had mains and I must say that the presentation of food was...More

I'm not sure but it was really busy when we went so I'd recommend it. Ask for a table by the window the view is fab. It would be a shame to miss it
