The oysters were magic. The seafood soup nice and spicy. Just the ticket on a cold and blowy night. The service was fantastic. I hope the baby arrives on time.

Five of us popped in for dinner with an early booking at 6pm. The place was warm and cosy (sat us right next to the fire). It was not long before the place started to fill.

The food is always amazing, and just the right portion size in a city that normally weilds portions for giants. Yum dessert selection. Can be a bit noisy but I'm usually too focussed on eating for it to bother me! The breads are a fantastic eay to start. Yum!

Local person told us to try here and once we found it was worth finding. The waitress was very friendly and the food came out quickly and was delicious. Little slow on the drinks but overall a great experience and would dine here again.

While being slightly hidden, you can find an excellent lunch and dinner restaurant once you made it to the entry. A good choice of vegi and non vegi options available in relaxed athmosphere away from the noise of Dee streed.

We arrived at the door at around 6 pm without having taken the precaution to book earlier. Although fully booked for the evening, the lovely young lady, Maddy, who served us went out of her way...

Doesn't matter if its lunch or dinner, the food is great. Its the sign of a good restuarant that you can order something new knowing that it will not disappoint.

Had lunch here with a friend. Lovely friendly staff. I had the chicken salad with a side of fries which was delicious. The salad has avocado, bacon, cashews, chicken and other yummy bits and pieces. My friend had the fish special which was silver trumpeter with a cheese sauce. She loved it and I must say it looked great. Great... More
