Have visited this restaurant many times over the years - they run their set menu until 7 pm so it represents good value for money - food and service also great.

We had a voucher to use La Vista next door which, when we arrived, had been closed for over a month! Lussmanns found us a table and we were treated royally. Very enjoyable meal and good service

From the White wine being served warm to the burnt crème brulé to the poor seating arrangement. A truly disappointing birthday celebration.
