Ate here with my husband and two of his adult children. The food was excellent! We had eaten at anpther fine dining restaurant the nigh before and been disappointed. The steak, chicken and fish dishes were all delicious and not overly fussy. Excellent service and great wine list. Loved it and will be back.

Dropping in for Sunday lunch we both really enjoyed our meals (beef and the fish of the day). They were delicious - perfectly cooked and very nice flavours. The service was good. The restaurant manager was very friendly and helpful.

We have been a couple of times recently because their tasting menu ( degustation menu) was so good , we had to go back. The menu was extraordinary, and the skill in the dishes, amazing. 5 courses of taste sensation, and the waiting staff were so attentive and friendly.
