    Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the way of picking your meal is an interesting and fun way to begin a meal. We went for the nine course 'inspiration menu' rather than choosing our own (five or seven) individual dishes. The stand out dish was the Calamari, a wonderful set of different calamari flavours and a very unusual calamari lasagna. Second to this was the extremely good John Dory. Everything was well put together, although some dishes felt a little salty for our tastes. The only problem was that the size of the portions appeared to be balanced towards a five or seven course meal, without taking into account that nine courses leaves the diner feeling a bit over stuffed. Again, this may be a diner preference, or we may just have smaller appetites than a typical customer. Overall it was very good, but not quite as well balanced as some of the other two Michelin Star taster menus we have had in the surrounding area.
