I was here in a business dinner. The place is very nice, but the food was not outstanding. The steak was a bit chewy, and vegetables were not of the season. Overall not impressive.

Rang a week before to book - staff helpful and attentive over the phone. Was promised a confirmation email after paying a deposit but never arrived but no matter. Stylish interior and immaculate decor and lighting. Very busy and bustling even at 6pm on a Saturday. But it all added to the atmosphere. Service was excellent, friendly and ordered even... More

Visited on a busy Saturday night. No reservation. Very pleasant staff said it would be about 15 mins wait for a table. We had a drink while we waited. Shown to our table on time. Excellent choice of menu. Food was excellent with very little delay despite being very busy. Waitress was excellent and couldn't do enough for us. Choice... More

I have been coming to this once quaint restaurant for the last few years for reliably solid food. Alas it has fallen victim to an issue that many of the city centre's restaurants suffer from, which is being too busy and manic, particularly at weekends. The last couple of visits the staff have seem rushed and the atmosphere has suffered.... More

As always, the food was amazing and so was the service, but I do wish they would invest in some brighter bulbs. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and always have trouble reading the menu because of the poor lighting - but I wouldn't let that put you off this place.

Six of us ladies recently dined here on Saturday evening for a birthday celebration. It was extremely busy, but the service was prompt and polite. Food was lovely and we all enjoyed our dishes. Chicken Fajitas were particularly good. Thought the Prosecco was a bit steep at £30 bottle, but we enjoyed it. We ate in the downstairs dining room... More

I came here after work with my colleagues and very much enjoyed my 3 course meal. As a vegetarian I do struggle to find a restaurant that delivers a delicious dish that isn't just a basic mushroom pasta! I had vegetable fajitas and they were beautiful. I would definitely eat here again.
