Dishes were beautifully created and customer service was great. Not considered a downside, but a steak knife for the flank steak would have been preferred. Would come back!

Nice restaurant with great service, nice ambiance and good food. I got the early Autumn set menu so cannot comment on the a la carte items but all the dishes had very nice flavours with the standout being the squid perfectly grilled and seasoned with the black ink sauce.

Fresh, imaginative food with warm atmosphere and reliable service matched with a good serviceable/ affordable wine list. Contemporary in delivery and attractive on all fronts. Very much a personality of the here and now.

Food arrived too quickly and all together
