During a recent stay in Milton Keynes we fancied a bit of an exploration into Buckingham itself, and found this gem. We had the fish on the specials board, it was lovely! Service was so friendly and honest as well as attentive. We had not made a reservation and the restaurant was very busy but the staff found us a... More

...but what there is, is great. For example the Korean tacos and the interesting additions to some of the dishes. Booking is very much necessary as the relatively small place is usually very busy. The acoustics are a bit poor making it noisy even on quiet evenings.

We had booked for the 4 of us on a Saturday at 8.30pm. The restaurant was full and (only slight drawback) quite noisy. We had to wait a little for our starter but the service sped up afterwards. We all ordered different dishes and were delighted with all of them. It's great to find a place where food is inventive,... More

We took our American friends for an early evening meal - which was advertised that if vacated table by 19.45 would come with a free starter or desert. Seemed a great deal. We arrived at 6.00pm which should have been plenty of time for two courses. But the service was so slow the we asked for the bill at 8.00pm... More

This is our second visit but first for the evening sitting. The staff were all very friendly and just attentive enough without being overbearing. The menu was very good but I went for the specials both starter and main course were excellent. The desert was fabulous. Not cheap but then not too expensive. We will go again and thoroughly recommend... More

I visited this restaurant after it was recommended to me by a friend last year and went one evening. We really enjoyed the food and excepted the service was a bit slow as it was a Saturday night and fully booked, and the busie atmosphere made up for the service. So I treated my kids to celebrate my daughters first... More
