Excellent food and service. It was so good we went two nights in a row. I would recommend this restaurant. It is small but that's a good thing. I will be back.

Had the pleasure of visiting for a meal on a Saturday evening and was pleasantly surprised to find an early bird being offered which I availed of. The chicken wings were great, lightly coated in something that crisped them up, and the steak was even better! My wife ordered bruschetta from the specials to start (my only criticism is it... More

Entertained some clients who said the food and wine were top class. I have been to this restaurant many times and always enjoy the experience. I must say that the serving staff are so friendly and professional. You have to climb a rather steep set of stairs , but once there you will not be disappointed.
