I had mixed feelings about this place, it's popular among celebrities as mentioned in the reviews, unusual spot, good ambiance, but the food is just mediocre doesn't do justice to the fame!

Had a wonderful meal here last weekend with my daughter! The food was great as was the service. I loved the gardens outside and will definitely be back! I had a mushroom starter and a steak meal. Great size portions and wonderful attentive staff!

The food I have no complaints about, absolutely brilliant. But the customer service on a couple of occasions now has been pretty mediocre. I'd still go back though!
