After 2 years back to this place. More welcoming with overlooking to history. I had a very well cooked steak with great service on a Monday night. Compliments to the chef and restaurant team, couldn't ask for more.

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant, situated in a historic hotel it has that old world charm feel while being modern and bright. The food is excellent and reasonably priced but could have a broader menu. It is child friendly with an outdoor...More
