    Fantastic place with nice friendly staff. Even when the restaurant started to fill up, it didn’t seem noisy. The food was excellent and you won’t be disappointed.

    We been at Michael for Christmas dinner. I must say that the service was great from the beginning to the end. We ordered a mussels side to share, were a very good decision. Main was a fish meal with rissoto, was OK and sirloin steak that was irregular about clocking point. The experience was good but we expected something more, not the service, but about food level.

    Absolutely fantastic. The ambiance created is unbelievable how I have never been to your establishment before drove me crazy as me and my wife love to eat out so will definitely be back and been telling friends and family all about it. On top of that staff at front of house just so pleasant and friendly and to then be presented with your amazing food was a delight we had oysters, mussels, steak bottle of wine, and toffee pudding and for your establishment I was expecting to pay over £100 and would have happily paid so you can imagine my surprise and delight to see a bill for £78 come back at me. Only slight constructive feedback is Booth’s seating are a bit far from table, but that’s it. Just an absolute delight will definitely be back and know doubt be a regular dinner. Thank you you have restaurant ratings and 5 stars across the board is not enough for this place 10/10 for me

    Good service and well-cooked food at the height of the Festivals. One downside: we had booked a pre-theatre meal but were outwith the time period. To compensate, we were given a generous discount on the bill. Well done...excellent customer service.
