We decided to return for our 50th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed in the least. The attention to detail from the service to the cuisine is exceptional. We decided to start with a toast to ourselves with a Taittinger Champagne. Everything from the appetizer...More

You get what you pay for, but you do pay. Great food & service, but a little pricey with a limited menu. Our fish, red snapper and sea bass, were both cooked just right - flaky, but still moist and flavorful. The restaurant is in...More

Best restaurant by far - excellent all around. Have been there many times and it almost seems out of place. Could be in New York, Paris... nice wine list with reasonable prices. Very comfortable seating - it should be a Michelin star restaurant. Only comment:...More

This meal stood out as one of the very best restaurant experiences we have ever had. The decor, the service, the ambiance, the music (from 60s cocktail to Coldplay) and of course the food, were all perfection. It has a gorgeous mellow 1960s feel to...More
