“the long wait”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

we had booked a table for 8pm and arrived 10 minutes early. We were shown to a crowded seating/holding area where we sat for about 20 minutes before being handed menus and our drinks order being finally taken. We sat for another 20 minutes before our food order was taken and finally got our table beside the toilets an hour after our arrival. Nobody had apologised or even acknowledged that there was any delay at all until the very end when we were paying our bill, having decided to forego dessert in case there was another long wait. We were not alone as many people were waiting an equal length of time. A wee apology upon our arrival, the offer of a complimentary drink and some nibbles on the tables might have eased the situation. The food was tasty but not exactly filling and to sum up we would never return nor recommend this restaurant.

“A fantastic meal”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

The food here is fantastic. I had scallops followed by venison and both were cooked to perfection. A real gem in the city. The staff were friendly and attentive without being over the top. I was holding a business dinner and it was the ideal choice. It was a Tuesday night and quite quiet so there wasn't a great deal of atmosphere but it was perfect for the occasion. I would recommend the food here.

“Great food, inventive menu & welcoming atmosphere.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I always know I'll never be disappointed when I dine here. Always great fresh, local produce used - with traditional dishes on offer as well as some unexpected recipes. Always been welcomed with children, who are offered wonderful kid-friendly versions of the a la carte dishes. So good to be able to take kids to a decent restaurant and not have them served chicken nuggets, again! Or worse, made to feel unwelcome. Great wine list and impressive selection of malts too. Great for a special occasion or just when you want good food. The deals are great value too.

“Nice”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Just had lovely evening, welcome, staff, restaurant and facilities all very pleasant. the food wasof course the highlight, each of the courses were well presented, just about the right amount, and very tasty, we all had something different for each course and no one was disappointed, all pleased or delighted. Good selection of wine not too unreasonably priced (I think most wines in resaurants are overpriced). Will go again but probably only on an occaision. I too felt that it was a little prentious but decided that that was what I was paying for so we all just sat back and enjoyed it!
