The service was adequate without being special. The food was similarly adequate, but not of sufficient flavour to tempt us to make a return visit, given it is not particularly cheap. We have had better eating experiences in the past at Michaels Kitchen / Whisky bar.
Very pleasant time. Friendly, helpful staff. Honest portions - steak and king prawns - and not overly priced for just off the Mile. I’d go again.
