This place is fantastic. Had dinner here on a recent trip and can't rate it highly enough. The effort that has gone into the decor really makes it stand out. The service really went above and beyond. Thank you for a great night!

The food was great, as were the staff, everyone was helpful and efficient. The menu has an awful lot of options, so everyone should be able to find something to eat. The cocktail menu is also lengthy. I love the motorbike theme of this restaurant.
