Good food in a charming setting. Good wine list and prices for wine Derek reasonable. I like the fact that fellow dinners were well dress despite the lack of a dress code. Thanks to the exchange rate our meal seemed reasonable given the quality.

We were seated in a lovely side room and had excellent service ... Except for the cocktail party just outside the door. I was disappointed that we were not offered a glass of wine or some small appetizer or bread until those guests went upstairs for dinner. I had the rack of lamb and duck fried potatoes. Good but not... More

A little pricey but the food and service is very good. Very centrally located. Wine list is good and even the lower priced ones more then acceptable.

She was... More

Two friends, my wife and I all had their their nightly special. It was fish on risotto topped by prawns. It was excellent! We had ice cream for dessert. I can't comment on the menu in general but given how good our meals were, I'd suspect it's all good.
