We dined as two couple on a very busy Christmas eve. The restaurant was heaving but we were offered a table at the rear of the restaurant/bar. The drinks list is pretty standard as is the menu with all the usual steak, lamb, fish offerings....More

From what remember there is a web site that offers 3 courses for about $32 dollars all from the same menu as normal but you must book for 6pm or 6.30 there are 2 to 4 meals available most days.
