“Not worth travelling far for.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great location and views, cheerful attentive service, food that looks and sounds good but tastes quite ordinary.

On a Saturday evening it's noisy and parking is difficult.

If you live near by it's a reasonable choice for dinner but not worth the journey if you're a distance away.

Overpriced and the food is not that good. The burger was pricey and left me wanting, messy and gooey. Definately not coming back. The day we went there the place was deserted, now I know why!

“Good food, good service, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

I really like the food here, and the neighbourhood is just great. If you sit in the bar area the atmosphere and view are the best in Durham. Not a place to look for value though.

Service is what you'd expect for an upper end restaurant, we went for Mother's Day in 2012 (booked way in advance) and while the seating was tight, and the place was packed, the wait staff did a great job getting us our food in a reasonable amount of time.

“Fun Place To Meet Friends”

We went here for lunch with a large group. We had reservations and were seated quickly. Nice view and location. Service was good and fast. Food is quite nice and a decent selection. We went here again for drinks in the evening and it was fun.

I enjoyed the food and the service. It was a quiet night there and I look forward to going back this summer to sit on the patio.
