The food was fantastic even if it was a bit expensive for what you get. The wait staff were great. We will need to save up again as I would love to go back for another date with my wife.

My partner eats a medium to large appetite and he felt satisfied by the end of the tasting menu. Tasting menu dishes are smallish, but we thought it was enough foo for the average man, & the quality was wonderful.
