Great steaks. Some of the best ever tasted. Rest of the meal? Not bad - not great! It's all about the steaks!

We have visited on a few occasions, as a couple, with friends and also when entertaining business colleagues. We have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent, the service is good and the views and ambiance are great. We will return and also recommend.
