Food was fabulous and the service when it was there was great. However staff were not circulating to check if everything was ok. Waiting 15 mins for a glass of wine. In the end I went up to the counter and ordered. Call me lazy but it shouldn't have to be!

A few years ago, a restaurant of this calibre on the Island would have been amazing. It's good news, and testaments to the general improvement of the scene, that it's now just pretty good. The restaurant is nicer than the bar area, which smells a bit beery. Food and service are good, and the atmosphere is pretty cool too.

I had walked past this restaurant many times but had never eaten there before. We were greeted warmly by the server and provided with the menus when being seated. The atmosphere was relaxed and the architecture of the space was very interesting. The menu has a wide variety of options to choose from including some local fare; a little something... More

Christmas party night.. The food was delicious, served on time and the portion sizes were generous! The serving staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble, even during such a busy period.

I had a three course meal and it was so tasty full of flavour for my starter and my main course was beautifully cooked really enjoyed it and my pudding was scrumptious! I Would recommend the courthouse to anyone looking for a good portion meal and excellent service!
