We ate downstairs in the restaurant on a Saturday night. The food was nice, 3 of us had fish which was very good. We had the dessert selection for the table which was enough for 4 of us. We had drinks upstairs before on the tapas bar which had a good atmosphere. Pricing of food was okay but some wines... More

I've waited a long time to dine here and boy it didn't disappoint. Good points: the food is excellent- period. Hake/ fennel and mash potatoes for the main course. Pannacotta and passion fruit sorbet with spiced pineapple lovely for dessert. Both were excellent and beautifully presented. Service superb with an attentive friendly waiter/waitress. The restaurant is beautiful and light downstairs.... More

The food certainly will not disappoint and the staff are most attentive. Attention to detail needs to improve. Cheap ikea tea light holders and a lack of linen tablecloths detract from the overall experience.

I booked Sunday Brunch for 4 people. The restaurant was chilly and not very welcoming when we were brought downstairs to our table. The waitress while friendly was not particularly helpful. One of our party asked for potatoes instead of chips with her fish and the waitress said that she would have to ask the chef as there were no... More

Always know you will enjoy a fabulous meal here. Finally was able to have afternoon tea and it was great. You will not ever be disappointed with the food an Bon Appetit. The one item to note is that it can get quite loud downstairs. Would be nice to install some noise damping tiles. The bar area is not noisy.
