Dined here one night with friends - food was quite overpriced. I ordered the homemade pasta with smoked salmon and the pasta was a bit too salty so I could not finish it.

We had a tapas feast with lobster, Italian Sausage, twice cooked duck and santo beef croquet's. The waitstaff were friendly and very accommodating and it was very quiet with only one other diner present.
