Really really good food. Creative but clean fusion cooking. Well balanced. It tasted as good as it looked. The wine list was a blast to read but they also offered very nice wine by the glass. Much appreciated.

A group of us went here for lunch and sat in the bar area. The bar menu was OK. The execution of the food was average. This is the second time I have sat in the bar area and each time there has been a mild aroma of sewage or bathroom or something similar. Because of this, I wouldn't sit in the bar area again.

We ate in the bar as it was quaint & has a nice ambiance. Menu had a nice selection for a bar menu. Prices are high, but then you are in a resort area so one should expect it.
We've eaten there twice on both our trips so we knew what to expect.
Over all it was good and we enjoyed it.

Group of four of us. We checked out the restaurant but decided on the bar as the atmosphere was cosier and less formal. One dish was wrongly delivered - the food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Huge wine list with prices to match!

As we were back in the area I decided to give this restaurant another chance. We instantly regretted it. It is even worse now- avoid if possible as there are many other fine choices in the area. But if you enjoy rubbing elbows with the nouveau arrivistes who are over imbibed and pushing you for a place to stand while they wait for a table then please stay, otherwise a short drive or walk will give you a much finer experience.
