Enjoyed dinner here with our family last night. The service was excellent, with two attentive wait people, willing to go ‘the extra mile’ when rain started, moving us to an inside table. The food was delicious and we all agreed.

We were a table of 4 and we each enjoyed a sensational dinner. One thing 3 of us had in common was our dishes were a little bit salty. Plenty of positives to see past this. Lovely service, great location and delicious food.
