The fish main course was outstanding! The service was poor, with little to no attention to us as diners from the wait staff - having to call someone to ask for water and drinks. Food arrived at awkward times, three appetizers at once followed by the 4th 10 minutes later. Was surprised at the poor service based on the reviews and prices.

In contrast, we went to the hotel lobby and the staff there helped us get desserts for take away - incredibly polite and helpful, loved them!

Everything about the restaurant was perfect, from the greeting to the bill!

We booked for dinner prior to a theatre show and it made the evening even more memorable.

The staff were friendly and attentive with the service almost a choreography, the napkins were re-folded when a guest left the table to go to the restroom, and when a member of staff stopped to answer a diners query, a passing waitress took the menu that she was holding behind her back.

Kevin explained the menu and advised us about portion sizes and his recommendations about what to accompany the main course with, were perfect.
He made sure we felt welcome and took time to ensure we were happy.

The food was absolutely delicious (the deserts are to die for), and we were not rushed at all.

We had three courses and coffee for two, which came to around £100, which I think was very good value for money.

The music was pleasant without being obtrusive and the staff were happy to spare the time to chat.

Overall I think this was the finest dining experience we have ever had, and we shall be returning the next time we are in town.

We had a fantastic night. Everything was just right and as for the staff, they went the extra mile maybe two. We struggled a little to find the place so the young lady took it upon her self to come outside to greet us so we wouldn’t miss it. Also the ladies who served us explained every detail of the menu and the size of the portions so that we could save money as some were so big. All in all we had a fab night and will be going again soon. One final thing the bar is very very smart the in place to be. Thank you to you all.
