    Booked this for the boyfriends birthday and it was not what I was expecting. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant it felt empty and no music. The food was not worth the price tag and was very average. The whole meal felt rushed and we didn’t feel welcome.

    Nice atmosphere. Good location. Attentive staff but wasn’t impressed with the chateaubriand we had with an ITISON voucher. Felt the quality of meat used was cheaper than others I have had. It was chewy and a lot was wasted because I was put off having to keep chewing to get it down.

    Nice food, place & service, a bit expensive

    The dinner was good, but not excellent for a Christmas dinner ! The ambiance was nice and the waitress were really kind ! Nevertheless the desserts were just totally amazing ! Thank you for that :)

    We had a lovely time in the restaurant. The service attentive, the food delicious ~ especially the venison and the apple crumble soufflé.
    Good friendly atmosphere which was a bonus as it was a very busy Saturday. I have been a number of times and will return again. Full marks!

    Very good food especially the cauliflower veloute. Venison also delicious. Good choice of wines by the glass. Prices a bit on the high side.

    Great meal, very friendly staff. Langoustines were wonderful!

  • (((** 14 August 2017 by Moira Whalley from Edinburgh

    I was very disappointed with the whole experience and J was expecting much more. There were several things wrong and I did not feel like a valurd customer. I had a glass of champagne, a small glass of your white and a large glass of your red. I thought the wind selection by the glass was quite poor but as my husband takes no alcohol - and you have no half bottles - I have no choice but to take wine by the glass. We did not get good drink service like other tables who had ordered a bottle ....I watched several tables and it was very apparent.
    My starter if langoustines was ok - a bit over-cooked and spoiled by too much butter. I love them, and was hungry, so I ate them.
    My husband and I had steaks (rib eye for him and fillet for me), but mine was cold. I called the waiter who took it away. Meanwhile my husband was left eating in his own. A new steak was served to me on the same plate with the same helpings of side dishes....and same peppercorn sauce. I ate the meal and kept waiting for someone to apologise - but that didn't happen. We asked for the bill and the girl who came asked how the male as so I told her. She said she would talk to the manager but I said I had already complained and nothing was done so I just wanted to leave. When we got to the desk, a manager asked us again how our meal was and I repeated everything again....find told I should have said!! I did say and nothing was done other than a new steak put on the sand plate....absolutely no apology!!
    I am sorry to say we will not be back.
