This is a really tough call. The food was great, well cooked and the proportions generous. The staff were great and friendly and the decor and atmosphere very special. But... In the first 10 mins I was denied things that on reflection I would have expected were reasonable requests. The first was we asked to be seated at a 2 seater table by the window. We were told no as all the tables were fully booked. Okay, I thought no biggy... but as it turned out that table remained empty for the 2.5 hrs we dined. Perhaps it was booked and they never turned up? I will never know but it was a small thing that would have meant a lot to us and was denied- it seems - for no good reason. However in isolation this would have been sent through to the keeper and the benefit of the doubt awarded. But when I ordered the wine the bottle was taken away and I was NOT allowed to keep it at the table. This meant that when my glass was empty I had to either wait until someone noticed (which happened but not without delay) or I spent my time trying to catch the eye of a waitress rather than talking to to my wife or enjoying the food I wanted to eat WITH my wine. I have been to many restaurants around the world and this is first time this has ever happened. And for this reason, unless the policy changes, I will not be returning despite all the positives I outlined before. When I am paying a fair amount for a meal it needs to be relaxed and hassle free.

The waiters were always around us trying to take our plates away or drinks away. We felt like they wanted us to leave. They kept asking 'are you finish with that'. The restaurant was not packed and there were plenty of tables available all the time so giving the table back after two hours was not necessary. At one point my friend said to the waiter, 'can we just keep the plate until we finish please'. There was a funny atmosphere.
