Food was fantastic great choice and excellently presented. Waiter service needs to be a bit more relaxed and not so scripted. A great restaurant highly recommended with fantastic food.

Keep in mind this is a high 3/5. Starter of duck egg very good. Main of steak was as expected, well cooked, nice sides. My wife’s paella was delicious. Dessert of peanut butter arctic roll was tasty. Thick almost black chocolate ice cream the highlight....More

Very nice setting with high quality food, clearly prepared with care. Absolutely brilliant wine list, choices for everyone from moderately priced to "pricier" ones: could have some more choices for rose wines, though. Polite service as well.

Dear mikebonzo, I'm a little taken a back by your review if I'm completely honest. Our Chateaubriand is on average about 500g of meat, equating to 16oz. This, along with the chips, onion rings, mushroom and tomato should be more than enough to suffice two...More
