Loved the tasty food. Presentation amazing!
A lot of care and thought has gone into every aspect of this dinning experience!
Great menu, choices are 5 star! Atmosphere and background music is great!
Service is perfect and most importantly the food was oozed flavour!

It was late on a Friday night when we arrived. We were the only patrons so we were understandably a little apprehensive. Then along came our very friendly and attentive waitress - she made us feel at home and saw to it that we found a nice bottle of wine. The chef personally came to our table to offer hs recommendations - beef fillet on the bone with roast potatoes. The meat was perfect!! The potatoes could have been better but did not spoil the meal - our plates were wiped clean!! Then came the pièce de résistance - the crepes!! They were exquisite even without the chef's complimentary shot of Muscadel. This jewel of a restaurant is definitely worth going out of your way to find!!

We arrived late at night, fully expecting the kitchen to be closed, which is was! So having resigned ourselves to go to bed on empty tummies, we were about to turn away when the chef/manager popped up and said he could do us burgers & chips in a jiffy, but the rest of the menu unfortunately was not available as they had closed their kitchen and cleaned up.

Well naturally we were delighted to be fed and even more delighted when they didn't just shove a burger under our noses, but delivered a really good tasty gourmet burger with all the trimmings and crisp thin chips done to perfection. And all this with a huge smiles and excellent service.

These folks are obviously true professionals at service and food, so I cant wait to be on holiday again and be back to savour their menu - during normal hours of course!
