As always the food and service were amazing! Not huge portions, you’re buying the quality and taste of the food, service as always was spot on - attentive but not harassing. Sorry, but can’t fault this restaurant.

Visited with a large group of friends on a Saturday lunch time. Staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. I had the beetroot tartare, followed by the pork and the pecan for pudding. Really exciting and tasty flavour combinations in each dish.

We had been meaning to visit this restaurant for a long time after reading the excellent reviews. But wow were we disappointed. The waiting staff are young and inexperienced and couldn’t help with our queries. We queried the fish but never did get an answer....More

By far the best place to go in town for a special occasion. Very classy setting looking out to The Minister. We always ask to sit in the window which is spectacular. The good cannot be faulted- a good excuse to try new flavours. Fully...More
