Dreadful. When the main comes as soon as the starter is finished, you'd think you were in some American fast food joint. A steak needs to rest. This bled, profusely, into the sauce. Given a quick electric shock this steak would have risen up and walked back to the field it was raised. Avoid at all cost.

This was our 3rd New Year's Eve meal at this restaurant. On each occasion the food has been excellent and very well presented. The waiters really make the evening a great success with their sense of fun and general attentiveness. Glasses are topped up regularly and the whole atmosphere is buzzing. A great way to celebrate New Year.
