    We enjoyed our meal,and if we had to say something we did not like it would have to be the length of time we had to wait for the bill to arrive. We asked two waiters who completely ignored us and it took about 15 minutes and further requests to pay the bill. The reason we were in a hurry,was because we were trying to catch a train, unfortunately we missed it by three minutes, and a further long wait at the station. Apart from this we had a good evening.

    Broken chairs a problem. Broken glass. One drink brought was not the one ordered. Food nothing special. On the same lines as Cote and Cafe Rouge but not as good in my opinion.

    Main course very dry especially the chicken, suggested to the waitress that some kind of jus should be added.
    Service okay - quite aloof manner from the waiting staff.

    Better than expected, despite being very busy and having to wait 20 mins for our table. Good portions and friendly staff
