The meals are always beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Variety is good and the staff are so pleasant and accommodating.

Wait staff were disorganised and struggled to get orders for a group of 10 in one go, starters were ordered in scattered time frame. Wait time for mains was ridiculous and not even close to matching their absolutely outrageous pricing. Never going back.

We arrived on the first night at 8pm to be told the restaurant was closed. Take two, we returned the next night and were seated in the outer glassed area - lovely! The food was delicious. A great selection for gluten free and vegetarian.
