Great food, great food, great service and great atmosphere. Not much more to say really. I'll definitely go back again. And, although it has been a point of contention in some of the reviews on here, I happen to appreciate the no-children policy in the evening. It's a bar/restaurant/bistro which is an adult setting and it's nice to know that when going out and paying for a pleasant meal and drinks in adult company, that is what you will get.

We liked the varied menu and ambiance of the place. The service was good and the wines reasonably priced. The decor was tasteful and the situation within easy reach of the city centre. The food was great and well presented.

I made a reservation, which happened to be for a 50th birthday party, although I did not mention this at the time. The reservation was for 4 people at 7:30 pm. I was not informed, at any time, of the restaurant's child-unfriendly policy, and I was informed, on our arrival, that my 10 year old son was not welcome after 7 pm. They mentioned something about their licence not allowing it, which I know is nonsense, as I am in the licensing trade myself. It it their policy to not allow children, which I think is unacceptable for a restaurant at this time of the evening. We had to try to find somewhere else to celebrate the 50th party, which was incredibly difficult on a Saturday night, at 8 pm, without a reservation. Get a grip and end this ridiculous discrimination.
