Sitting in this restaurant was a pleasure with its wonderful decor, and then when the food arrived it just became as perfect as you can get, I have dietary problems at the moment and the chef just cooked what I asked of him, with no sauces or spices. The menu was varied to suite all tastes and all dishes appeared... More
