Nice menu range. Pricing is fair. Food actually tastes great. The Oreo mudslide if you need a sugar high. There's also a lounge separate from the main dining area.

Nice setting had alot of potential. Didn't try the club or bar, just the restaurant, service not very good and the food distinctly average and not good value. A shame. Will have to try cocktails another time.
