It’s Truffle season and we booked in for the Truffle 8 course degustation. We have celebrated a special occasion at this restaurant before and loved it so decided to go back again. We were not disappointed. The service was exceptional, atmosphere warm and inviting and food absolutely delicious.

Everything was excellent! The waiters were lovely, the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and cosy and the wine and food was delicious. They gave us a pre-entre and a pre-dessert plus an extra desert at the end, being that we were celebrating a birthday. All that on top of out 3 course meal. The only feedback I would give is that the toilets were a bit uncomfortable and very cold compared to the rest of the restaurant.

Excellent venue. Truffle degustation menu was very nice. About half of the courses celebrated truffle whereas the others simply had truffle shaved over them. Staff were under pressure meeting requirements of patrons arriving from 8 - 8:30 at table change over time. Otherwise service was excellent.

We ordered the 7 course degustation. Each course was amazing with a wonderful combination of flavours. If anything the portions were slightly large as we were full after several courses. Service was fantastic and atmosphere very welcoming. Will definitely be back.

In general, the restaurant provides excellent customer service. The food they serves were very delicious and it will remained in your taste buds at the end of every course they offered. A full-4-course dinner has been ordered and between course has an advertisement for food sample which is good. 👍 It help me to extends my time to communicate with your date. The place is conducive for a dinner date. It surpassed my expectations. 10/10. Well done 😉👍🍾😘

The experience is amazing. The menu is exciting and always explained in detail by the most attentive and friendly staff. In addition to the menu items the chef spoils guests with exquisite amuse bouche additions. A wonderful experience and fabulous staff.
