Went to dinner with the company and what a treat! The food was excellent as were the drinks! The restaurant is not very big so seating for a large party was a little cramped when they are busy.

They have private rooms for events, but atmosphere is relaxed because of location of this place. Both tourists and locals come to this place. So dress code is basically your choice.
