Had a lovely experience at Gourmet, this is by far the best "Natural" restaurant. The setting is smallish but cozy and romantic, the service absolutely fabulous and the food (meat) very, very food.

We went hear about 3 years ago in winter and had a lovely evening but tried again last year was disappointed but thought we would give it another go.
