Came here for dinner with my girlfriend and wasn't impressed. Food was rather bland and took too long to arrive. I felt the whole experience was over priced for what it was.

I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and decided to book it for my 30th Birthday, as I wanted to go somewhere a little more special than normal. I called and spoke to John to see if they would open for lunch on Saturday, which they were more than happy to do. 18 of us had an absolutely fantastic 3... More
