    The service was excellent, as was the presentation. The food was lovely, however, although I liked the dry texture of the halibut, my husband was less positive. The portions were good; the dishes well- balanced. We had gone early as our son has been critically ill and we weren’t sure how he’d cope; because we were early there were rather too many very well- meaning waiters hovering. Understandable. We love it there.
