The restaurant is very charming and has no pretences ... which it could well have, as the food is beautifully prepared, magnificently presented and the combinations are something very special. We chose to eat off the a la carte menu and weren't disppointed. The meal deserves 5 stars, however we were treated rather apathetically by our waiter, which put a dampener on the evening (in retrospect). Whilst the tables around us were receiving interesting synopses of the meal and ingredients from their waitresses, our gentleman was exceptionally "brief". At the end of the meal, he simply disappeared with the tip - which he didn't really deserve in its entirety, without so much as a thank you. We were left to walk ourselves to the door! Such a pity. The owner/chef clearly has a wonderful passion for his business - you don't get better quality than this.
