We stumbled on to this place quite by chance so didn't know what to expect. The staff were very good and the food was very good indeed all in an impressive setting.

Everything from the starters to the mains were excellent. A steak defeated me in the Ribeye but was gorgeous and cooked to perfection. All the sides were amazing and the service was good. Overall fantastic place

We were seated immediately and served bread and water right away. Very attentive staff. We split a wedge salad (and loved the chunks of bacon!) and also split surf and turf. Both were excellent. From the bar, we enjoyed cosmos. Recommend!!
