Nice menu, good quality food, but pretentious. One of our starter orders was wrong and our Avocado Bernardo with lobster, scampi and prawns, actually only contained prawns. After pointing this out we were told it was a mistake by a new chef. Service was erratic...More

Ignoring our rather large drinks bill......we had three starters, three main courses with sides. We were well looked after and had a most enjoyable evening. Always a fantastic atmosphere without it being too noisy. Total food bill came to £97.35

These guys are serious restaurateurs. They have a good number of waiters who are attentive. The food excellent. We've had lobster linguine, mixed fish, veal Milanese and smoked trout starters. All are faultless. Love it. Hate the £16 overnight parking charge
