We were looking for somewhere to eat, this restaurant was busy but had room for us. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. All seemed freshly prepared and the price was acceptable.

Have been coming here for over 10 years and it's still my favourite restaurant ever. Great food, friendly service, wonderful atmosphere. Can there be a better place to eat? I doubt it.
