As per my title, this was a wonderful tasting meal experience for my wife and I. Yes, servings are small, but it is a 'tasting menu' so after 6 courses, an amuse bouche and lovely breads, we found ourselves well satisfied. The atmosphere was warm,...More

We had the tasting menu with matched wines and it was absolutely delicious. Excellent service. The staff even managed a short notice (after our meal) to whip out a cake and candle for my husband’s birthday. It isn’t a huge restaurant so I recommend booking...More
