Loved the garden and relaxing sound of running water from the fountain. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Two of us ordered medium rare fillet streak, which was tender and done perfectly. The third meal, a chicken dish was not outstanding, but okay.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
