Food standard was low. Steak not cooked right and lacked flavor.

The food tasted great and the service was good. Good choice of dishes on the menu. Thoroughly enjoyed my beetroot salad, it was light and refreshing. The lamb ragu pasta was delicious too. The dessert of apple tart lacked contrasting flavours. The only flavour you could taste was sweet. Was a little disappointed with that. That being said, the atmosphere and service made up for it. Nice and relaxed setting, perfect for chilling any day of the week.

Chose this place because it is always quiet, seats are comfortable, nice ambience and great service. This time the food wasn't as great as on previous visits. had the mushroom risotto which was a nice texture but had no mushroom flavour and no mushroom colour. The baked salmon also came in for criticism by our group.

Staff were extremely hospitable and friendly. Pretty empty when we were there so not much atmosphere but then got quicker service. Food was nice.

The lady behind the bar said they don't do cocktails. The waiter serving us didn't know what 'frangelico' on ice was not was he aware of the wines on the menu. The food was average (duck confit was very very fried, I.e. Almost crispy to the bone). The interior of the restaurant is nice. However, there isn't really a vibe. Sadly disappointed by the experience overall.

We had been to this restaurant earlier this month and the food was really very good. This time the plate was sparse and the meal just average.
