    We have eaten here twice recently and the food is excellent. The staff are very polite and attentive - but not overly.
    Lovely atmosphere, which in all, means you want to come back.

    Setting good and layout of tables. Menu good description of each dish. Could do with healthy options and nutritional content. Service was a bit of a let done. Waitress didn't write order down so when it arrived it was wrong. Waiter who bought food out didn't ask us if we needed anything else, condiments or more drinks. I had finished my drink at this point.

    I much enjoyed my seabass and the experience was much better sitting on the hard chairs. I was disappointed to see you still had those ghastly cushions for incontinent geriatrics in the bucket seats. You really must get rid of them they are an embarassment. You could try covering them in red plastic but one would still slide off them. There must be a chic looking fabric that one does not slide off and does not stain you could cover them with. Nowhere to hang my long coat so I had to drap in on the back of my chair all over the floor. Not good.
