My Octopus was Char-Grilled too much, even though it was tender. Sauce was so so. However, I would recommend 'The Whole Grilled Trout' was the best, Venison 2nd.

Food was served cold and low quality. The duck was not served hot and the fillet was too tough. Waiters need to find another job

We enjoyed an excellent meal with another couple, and the food and service we're sensational. Whilst we were dining, a guy at another table had obviously selected this venue as an excellent location as he proposed to his girlfriend.

Had been there 4 years ago, and it was definitely better food and service then. It was nice, but not outstanding and starting to be in the category of "a bit pricey for what you get"

The service seems to have slipped since the last time I was there. The duck was over cooked. The wine and water service was slow. Would prefer not to have to order two/three courses. Too restrictive. Would prefer to have wine on the table to allow me to control pouring

The Tasting menu was wonderful and they even changed one of the items for us. Wine selection was limited and the atmosphere was a little noisy but great view and dinner!
