Menu options are less interesting than they used to be and choices fewer. Presentation also less stylish than on previous visits and waitresses inexperienced and lacking knowledge of both the food and the wines. Thankfully the barman is very knowledgeable & helpful in selecting wines. Food still good but was excellent around a year ago. Maybe the chef has changed?
Amazing food, knowledgeable staff, lovely atmosphere. Food quality definitely some of the best I've eaten in a long time (and as a real foodie, I don't say that lightly!). The owner knows his wines and can recommend pairings with food. Will definitely be visiting again.
great food, attentive staff , wonderful restaurant , would highly recommend
