I've been to this restaurant several times over the years & seen some changes, but the food has always been very good. The menu is excellent, but the last few times I've been, the service has been pretty bad. At best it is efficient, but to be honest I just get the the impression that the staff just want a quick turnover. Their manner is pretty brusque, and when Chris and I went there for a first date, it was a bit off-putting, but at least it gave us something to laugh about! Even though we'd booked, we were clearly just being directed to the nearest available table, there was no reservation in place, which I think someone else has pointed out on here. The food is still very good, but we stick to takeaways now.
