Wonderful dinner in this lovely restaurant. Would suggest you make a reservation in advance. A little pricy but worth every cent.

The award-winning lamb dish was excellent - totally deserving of the 'Best lamb dish' award which it has won twice.

The service was OK - the entrance to the restaurant is often untended and we were left wondering where all the staff were, as were several other groups that arrived while we were eating.

The dessert was not up to the same standard as the entrees and mains.

We had a good dinner there but were put off by the upcharge "due to more demand in high season". Lamb was quite good, but undercooked somewhat. We felt it was expensive for what we got. Service was very good.
