The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. the staff were courteous, charming and obliging although we could have been offered a further round of drinks once we were seated. Seven of the eight of us had the fillet steak and whilst I personally found the food was to die for and delivered to the table steaming hot, two of our party... More

Easy to book (midweek) for evening meal. Ample parking close by. Quick and attentive service. Not an extensive menu but all requirements met. Both of us chose the fish of the day and received an excellent snapper dish. This left enough room for a desert each. A very enjoyable meal, well recommended.

Went as a couple for dinner a few weeks ago. Meal was pretty good. Very 'Master Chef' cuisine with everything tasty and well presented. Quick and friendly service. Only real negative was the seating and room really. Lots of glass windows so once the restaurant filled up it got pretty noisy. Also, perhaps one too many tables along the windows... More
