Mmmmmm deliscious meals and decent sized. Went as a group of 3. Had entree and mains. Everyone was happy with their meals and no room left for desert. Atmosphere is ok. Staff/service was good.

Awesome dinner experience with a large group of friends. The staff were helpful, friendly, knowledgeable & able to keep up with the demands and banter of our group. The absolute winner for me was their knowledge about gluten free food requirements which they catered to...easily. The meal was delicious & each person in our group commented positively. The cocktails were fabulous & we managed to work our way through a few of these too! Thanks for a great night out :)More

The food is very average and the dishes themselves don't have a cohesive theme. Instead, it seems like the kitchen decides on some ingredient (lentils on the night we went), and then every dish has lentils with it (chicken, duck, it doesn't matter - all...have lentils) even when the style of the dish doesn't really work with it. It's a nice location that you pay extra for. The service was attentive. If you want nice ambience, it's not a bad choice. But if you want fine dining cuisine, give this place a miss.More

Lovely restaurant with fine seating and serve staff. An early bird menu with 6 tasty options is well worth a look and requiring a table vacate by 7. Fish was fresh and crispy and the pasta was perfectly cooked. The early bird menu includes a...house wine and is a great deal. Kids menu comes highly recommended 😊 The side salad of blue cheese, walnut and pear is sensational!More

Friends at an event I was attending had recommended this restaurant as the place to eat. My husband rang them at 4.40pm to book a table for that night and left a message on the answerphone. There was no reply although we thought they must...be open. At 5.30pm my husband rang again, the phone was answered and the person on the other end very abruptly told him that the restaurant was fully booked, end of conversation. We think front of restaurant service could be improved.More
