We picked this up for two reasons - it was in a local magazine and it was opposite our hotel, and they could do a walk-in so that was great. The staff were friendly and very good at explaining how the restaurant works (your own tasting menu) and what the dishes were. The service was good. The kitchen end takes a little while to get going but once the food starts coming it comes quickly. The food was excellent, imaginative and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the wine list was good. Also a varied clientele and so good place for people watching. A good choice for us.
