This spot is amazing for a ladies night out. As a pregnant person, finding a place to eat a burger where I don’t have to send it back to be recooked is so rare, but not last night. The kitchen served a juicy burger that...was also well done, it was easily the best burger I’ve had in awhile. Their mocktails were so delicious! The desserts were beautifully presented and tasted divine! Our waitress was so amazing and we couldn’t have asked for better service!More

5 of us called in here for a meal and it was absolutely fantastic. The service was superb and the cocktails to die for. There was a DJ playing behind us, who was as cool as a cucumber. The attention to detail throughout the building...was phenomenal. Well done.More

Great restaurant in the city centre. Lot's of options to choose from. I sat at the bar and had excellent service from the tender. Lobster Roll was pretty good, the truffled frites made the meal though. Good wine and cocktail list. In and out-of-doors dining....Great value.More
