We went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. Great food and great service! The owners are leaving to return back home which is a shame. If you get the chance I'd go before it's closed!

We should have had a quick look at TripAdvisor before getting in, there are many other reviews echoing ours. The Chef's behaviour is inappropriate in the presence of children. If you're not a family, then enjoy. The food is quite oily, but really good.More
