Had dinner here two nights in a row. I'm travelling by myself so is nice to find somewhere that you feel comfortable enough to go back twice. Had the special gnocchi on the first night followed by an amazing chocolate souffle. And squid on the second night. Both very good indeed. Cocktails ate very yummy too and the staff (Dion)... More

Three different friends recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. A large, spacious dining room. The espresso martinis were excellent, and everything we ordered was delicious, especially the steak. All of this was served by friendly and prompt waiters and bar staff. Couldn't be happier with our visit and will certainly head straight there next time.

We had lunch which ended up lasting hours as we had an emergency and had to find alternative accommodation. The staff were outstanding and made us feel so warm and welcome. The food was beautiful, atmosphere relaxed and the perfect location.

Had lunch and dinner. Took 8 days to get a booking for dinner. Excellent friendly service. Was great to observe chefs in open kitchen relaxed, smiling and clearly enjoying each other's company as they cooked. Food is tops. Double baked mushroom porcini soufflé was a hit!

Thank Maria A
