Been there for lunch and enjoyed it

Honestly surprise by the high standard of this restaurant. Everything was perfect for a late lunch with my husband. I wouldn’t say that is expensive as I could see on some previous review because when you see the location and how good is the food it’s just NORMAL. I’ll be back that’s for sure.

Service and ambience very good but portions were too small. We dined from the set menu which I wouldn’t do again.

Went with my family for my father's birthday last night - very friendly and attentive waiting staff with beautiful interior decor and ambient. The restrooms are stunningly designed! We had the set menus which are very good value for money and ordered some additional bits off the menu. We had a lovely evening, thank you

The food was excellent , but the waitress was extremely rude when we asked about the dessert , and she kept throwing the menu next to me forcing me to order . Also some of the food she brought weren’t the ones we ordered.

Very friendly and attentive staff, beautiful restaurant and all the food was delicious. The dessert was perhaps a little too rich and the wine list expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The addition of the DJ in the bar area made for a very loungey vibe, we felt like we were on holiday!

Food is very delicious. Decor and place are great. Waiters freindly. Music is very loud and noisy.
