Went to Number 8 and expected nice food and pleasant surroundings.
what we got was something far above our expectations. I ordered a seafood journey and the presentation and quality of the food was exceptional. The staff we very attentive and at one point the Head Chef came out and introduced himself and check on the progress of the meal. This accompanied with an amazing wine list and a Dessert ( tasting plate ) rounded off the evening.
Definitely a jewel in the Crown empire !

When we were all having difficulty deciding what to order the chef Michael came out & organised a menu especially for our table. Everything was delicious & some dishes looked too good to eat. Tim the sommelier matched Michaels menu with some delicious wines. I just wish I could dine here every week.

I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality across the board on all levels. This place is owned bu the casino, so I was not expecting that the food and service would be at such a high level. The Oysters were first class, the main was superb. Highly recommended.
