When we went it was very quiet, but still had a nice atmosphere. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and the food was well done. It was quite expensive, bit worth the money. I will probably be visiting again at some point.

Couldn't make a dirty martini as no olives but creating a soy sauce and basil martini, and knowing that it tasted similar, shows a real skill!
