Visited with my husband and son, warm welcome, prompt service. Both my husband and son had Rib-eye steak which was beautiful, if somewhat larger than my husband expected. The seafood starters, scallops and mussels were lovely. I had halibut which was tasty and light. We...More

Is the restaurant air conditioned?

It was -1C when I visited last so the fire was lit. Didn't notice any air conditioning units when I was there. They're friendly enough so I would probably phone if you really needed to find out.
