Food was excellent, particularly the steak was well worth the money. Service however was even better! Wasn’t waiting too long and waiter (I believe his name was Jacob) was superb! Would recommend to anyone.

We must have been unlucky, as from the reviews on Tripadvisor our experience was not the norm. The restaurant was empty, thus no atmosphere. The lad serving was friendly but was openly laying his head on the bar in between serving as he had nothing...More
