This place was recommended but I'm sorry it's way over rated. The service was chaotic and the food when it finally arrived was average. It you want the latest hip groovy place then this is it. If you want great food then look elsewhere.

We had a delicious meal in the Black Sheep restaurant. Booking ahead is essential as it can get busy. They have an extensive specials board with limited availability on each dish so getting an early table will actually give you more choice. In particular the...More

Would definitely recommend this place located in a really trendy area of town. Very attentive and knowledgable staff, which given the fact the menu changes daily, is very impressive.
