    Beautiful restaurant with amazing views. Food pricey but delicious. Fabulous cocktails. Decor and ambience fantastic. Very courteous and efficient staff. Only downfall both in bar downstairs and in Sophie's restaurant was the music was too loud so everyone had to shout to be heard. It was good music but just should be a few decibels lower so patrons can hear themselves speak. Overall a great place to go and will go again and recommend to anyone who wants a great dining experience.

    Food was excellent, service was very good, staff very friendly, background music was a bit loud, something more chilled would have been more appropriate for night time dinner. All in all though a very nice experience, will definitely be back.

    I would like to see vegan options on the menu as every time I call in I am being told that there are optionS(plural) including dessert and when I arrive then I have to chat with the waiter to modify dishes on the menu and they come in very underwhelming to say the least, being not the cheapest. Have been there two times, yesterday was the second time and it was my birthday so on the phone I was assured that there is a vegan cake option, but there was none. Luckily the day before I have been to another restaurant with a separate vegan menu. We've spent a large sum of money this time, but I will never return.

Great selection on the menu, we had a coeliac with us and he absolutely loved his freshly made gluten free pizza! Cocktails were great and the view was beautiful at sunset. Definitely will be back!

    Loved my food and have been here a lot recently and had nothing but good things to say about the staff and the food ! I went last night with my friend and was told at 7:30 that we had to give back out table, it was a Monday night and the place was very quiet, we were told we had 4 minutes to leave ! We would have ordered another drink at 7:10 when we were brought our bill! Very disappointed

    Food was very good. But we had 40mins between starters and mains. They did how ever give us a glass of wine each. They also forgot that I asked for a candle on desert for my partners birthday. That said we would return again

    Disappointed. We thought it was a proper restaurant. We are retired. We realised it was not for us. The food was burgers really. No salad which was utterly amazing for any age group & the music was poor & far too loud. I enjoy nearly all music. Oh dear, sorry to tell the truth. Good luck, you’ll probably be fine but not for us.

    Very disappointing. My porridge was so glumpie looked like scrambled eggs, not one waitress asked us were we okay, was everything okay throughout our whole breakfast. Coffee was lovely, the smallest cup of coffee I ever had though. When the waitress collected the cutlery not a word spoken to me, would I like something different as I had only one spoonful.Full bowl left, Iv never witnessed such negligence in a restaurant. We paid for both dishes nothing was said to us at the desk, I would have thought we wouldn’t be charged for the porridge.My boyfriend got a very average fry nothing to write home about. Setting fabulous.

    From the second we walked in we noticed how dirty the place was 😳... We arrived at 12pm for brunch and were immediately seated at a beautiful table with a great view of the city. So far so good! Then we placed our order roughly 10 mins later. 1 beer 1 coffee 1x chicken and waffles 1x kids pancakes 1x eggs Benedict 20 mins go by and still no drinks. This makes me annoyed as I can see loads of chit chat amongst the staff and the place is still quiet at this time of day. Anyway drinks arrive and almost the same time as the food , food was very basic and imo. The menu stages smashed avocado with both dishes. It was guacamole that was served , and it was poisoned with garlic. If I had known it was guacamole and not smashed avocado I wouldn't have ordered it. (and yes there is a difference , it's quite huge one actually) our bill came to 48.95 I really wanted to like this place , it really is a beautiful location. Imo the lack of experienced floor staff and staff in general is why this place is woeful. . .

    Lovely experience from the doorman who greeted us to the welcoming staff right through to the fabulous food. Good size portions, food served piping hot, pizza and garlic bread huge and delicious (which the kids shared) I had prawn and chorizo pasta and my husband had duck - both amazing. Would have loved to try the cocktails which looked unreal but kids were with us! Will be going back. Only down side was parking not available on site. Overall it didn’t disappoint.

    Food was gorgeous, venue is stunning. Music was too loud and couldn’t get the waiters attention, it was difficult to hold a conversation with the level of the music at lunchtime.
