It was a pleasure that we finally got round to trying this gem. The food and ambience was excellent and we really liked how the larger mains could be split into half sizes given we were only a party of two. Would love to come back and explore the rest of the menu.

Excellent food, although some of the serves were a bit small for the price paid. Excellent service from the waiters.

We had a big lunch! The food was fabulous but the staff made the experience with great wine matching and good chat.

Lovely atmosphere but slightly disappointed - was so looking forward to it. The food just didn’t wow me like I thought it would. But it was very nice.

Very expensive, some of the entrees were pretty average. Feel like the quality of the food has slipped
