There was a group of 9 of us. The staff were extremely attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The food all arrived at the same time and all meals were superb. Cannot fault the place.

Excellent food and service. To be highly recommended. Plenty to eat. Not left waiting. The only downside was it was a bit cold in the restaurant. But otherwise no complaints. Will be back.
