The restaurant which was a Reubens , retains some of the flair- BUT unfortunately if the chef was trained by Reuben himself, I would be surprised. The menu is good and tasty BUT the Duck was over-cooked ( NOT medium) and the fillet steak the...More

Went to this gorgeous boutique restaurant for the best meal in a long time. The baby calamari was a superb starter. I had fillet medallions with an oxtail reduction which was the best I have ever tasted. The lemon meringue dessert was spectacular and the...More
