We have been visiting this restaurant for 12 years and it has always been very good- until now. To begin with the manager argued with us about the timing of the reservation, which he eventually admitted didn't matter as the restaurant was not fully booked...More

We felt the main thing that let this place down was the staff/service although there were a few problems. The food although slightly overpriced we were happy enough with. The salmon was close to being underdone though was a big tasty portion. The steak my...More
