We visit friends in this area every year and for the past two years this has been our special night out. We choose this restaurant for it's wonderful food, lovely setting, and elegant atmosphere. We have always eaten on the terrace, so cannot comment on the dining room. On arrival we are always greeted politely and pleasantly, and we find the service to be professional, efficient, and friendly. The food, however, is the highlight! Creative, flavourful and beautifully presented. For example, on this visit, to start, I had fresh asparagus and a lightly breaded poached egg...both cooked to perfection but my husband had Courgette Flowers stuffed with Shrimp Mousse, which was both beautiful and delicious! This restaurant is expensive and is not for everyday dining. I notice that other reviewers have commented that it is not "family friendly", however, we have seen families dining and enjoying themselves but can imagine that children would need to be well-behaved and somewhat sophisticated to enjoy this experience.
