Wonderful venue and service complimented some inspired and creative cooking. Richly deserves its star and, in the great scheme of things, good value for the experience.

A quiet, spacious restaurant with attentive staff. We found the food tasted wonderful with extraordinary flavour combinations. Unfortunately one piece of fish was very tough and inedible.
