We had a great meal at 500 tonight for a birthday treat. The food was fantastic and the service was great, very attentive but without being over bearing at all. Generous sized portions with top quality ingredients and imaginative dishes. Would definitely recommend.

First visit to this recommended venue. Starters were good, crab and a salad. main courses a little disappointing - the risotto was tasty but tepid, (how long had it been waiting?), and lamb ordered medium-cooked had only just stopped bleating. Ice-cream flavours were bland and...More
