Enjoyed a great meal here with my wife (even had a great range of vegetarian meals for her). My fish was very fresh and not too expensive either. Great service and a great night in a hidden gem of a place.

I would call the hotel in the first instance and discuss this with them. They are very accommodating and very approachable. I would feel confidant if they said they could do something that they would deliver.
