Nice little place. Waitress very friendly. However, as the restaurant got busier it was harder for her to attend to everyone. Definitely need more staff on hand here. Food was nice with VERY generous portions. Good city centre location.

good food, lovely service and a friendly atmosphere. Doggy bag may be needed!!! We tried to stay away from the starters as we knew how much food would be served in the mains but they were just too tempting - and delicious!!
