Price quality was quite good and the gala night was beautiful. We enjoyed the night. Might not. Be a good option for young people as the the average age of clients maybe quite high.

It seems, from other reviews, that this restaurant is either brilliant or awful! We were lucky and had a fabulous evening with delicious food, good service and a great atmosphere - I would definitely go there again next time I’m in the area.
