I don't mind Garlic but if you do this place is not for you. I had the steak with Garlic sauce and garlic mash (no salad option) - it was ok but i've had better steaks. There was some entertainment (singers) on in the restaurant...More

It is a lovely big restaurant, with nice features. The first thing you notice every time you walk past is how empty it is. It is a well placed restaurant and so you have to wonder why it is not used as much. The staff...More

The place was almost empty, and we should have taken noote of this and gone elsewhere. Erratic service (the place was almost empty, but our drinks took an AGE to arrive). Overpriced, mediocre food, with little creative flair (and not that much taste of garlic)....More
