This place is touted as a fine dining establishment but my wife and I stopped going there because we found it much too pretentious. It is not a place where ordinary people will go on a regular basis because it is too expensive.

We had the duck Pate' and seafood Vindaloo, onion soup and smoked salmon! A fair bit of curry on the menu for some reason! Prices are fairly high and the food is just average!
