This was a great spot for celebrating in style. Lots of game on the menu, the steak was fantastic and there was a great selection of wines. It's in a shopping centre but don't let that put you off. Wonderful grub!

Lovely spot overlooking the wharf. The restaurant itself is trendy and always busy. The menu is imaginative and the food is always, without fail, excellent. Great wine list. Professional staff. You can't go wrong. Book for busy times like Fri/Sat nights.

I needed to have a private conversation with 12 business associates and the restaurant was able to provide me with their private room complete with two dedicated wait-staff. What a wonderful experience! The wine selection is incredible and if you're a vegetarian, be sure to try the aubergine parmigiana dish - excellent.
