  •   This restaurant has a lovely ambience. The service was faultless, staff were friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding, we thoroughly enjoyed every bite from the starter to the main course and on to the dessert! Book a table and see for yourself!

      First let me say that the food was very good and reasonably priced. That being said, the staff and I think one of the owners were not friendly and fairly dismissive. After we were served they did not check on us and did not offer...More
