Took our Board for the annual thank you dinner. Great food, service and ambience in a first class venue. By using the fixed price Christmas menu the cost was very reasonable too. Fantastic cuisine and first class service. Highly recommended.

We had the full tasing menu, and it was mostly very interesting, very good, beautifully presented and well balanced. Just towards the end it all got too chocolatey for my liking, I felt a lot of the previous subtle tastes were simply destroyed by the...More

It's always better to go to a nice place on your own than NOT go there, so yes, do it.

I´ve only dined at the restaurant once, and then I saw people with everything from suits to denim. It´s fine dining so I will not recommend jeans, but if you must then at least wear dark ones and a shirt. Enjoy your visit :)
