Title says it all, our server was fantastic and the chef was quite helpful when it came to our food allergies, however they main courses were just a tad disappointing. Would still come back again for another shot!

Both of us enjoyed our dishes (I had duck). Service was good and very friendly. Only negative was that our table was a bit isolated and next to a service station.
