Very good food here. I had the ostrich and my husband had the pesto mozzarella steak. Both were delicious. The service was good and we had absolutely no complaints.

Today we went to Harry B's for dinner and it was just awesome. Carpaccio, ostrich with mango and fillet with camembert, just delicious. And don't forget the banana pancake. Will go there again, definitely.

I was surprised to hear that the owner had prepared our below average meal that we had in the charmless courtyard. My pepper burger was average sized and charred black with a teaspoon of thick, tasteless 'gloop' that must have been the pepper sauce. My husband got a plate with a sad looking fillet set in the middle and nothing else - no seasoning, no basting, no garnish. When the veggies arrived in a small bowl, the dry end of the broccoli stem was burnt along with the carrot. I remarked that this food had been made by a very disinterested and unskilled 'chef' who must have been distracted as we were (unsurprisingly) the only customers, yet she managed to burn both our meals and still served them. After the rave reviews we really wanted to come here and ordered the meals that were being written about. My advice is - don't bother, the owners do not care about their own business and this restaurant deserves to be empty. Only the waitress was very sweet and charming.
