“Food was expensive and restaurant was too bright !”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We felt it was overpriced for what it was and the restaurant's lighting was not condusive to an enjoyable evening out as it felt like you were in a staff canteen. Haven't been back.

“A little disappointed”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The title says it all really.

We had heard good things about this restaurant so booked for a Saturday night but found that the menu was pretty limited, the portion sizes were small and the staff were not particularly friendly.

On the positive side the food was very tasty and well presented and the service was at a reasonable unhurried pace.

I agree, go for a table in the main restaurant as it is nice and cosy whilst the side room lacks some of the atmosphere.

“Fab place, amazing food”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We called ahead to this restaurant as one of our party had a garlic allergy. The staff did obsess about this a little bit and we did get a bit fed up of being reminded that they had done as much as possible but couldn't 100% guarantee etc. etc. Luckily the quality of the food more than made up for this and the service otherwise was spot on. There was not one complaint every course was presented wonderfully and tasted superb! Pricey but well worth it for a treat!

“A Warm and Friendly Restaurant with Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I visited this restaurant to help celebrate a friend's birthday. We were greeted by friendly staff with attentive service.
The menu held promise with a nice range of dishes which when delivered they lived up to the billing. The food quality was excellent and really tasty with everyone in the party enjoying their dishes.
