I eat here on a regular basis and I am always very happy with the choice, quality and taste of the food. The service is always very good and the deserts are wonderful. Lovely atmosphere can be a little squashed down stairs sometimes.

Yes you should go upstairs. there is two sections one over the bar, it has wooden floors and a little noisy. it would be better to get the the area at the side of the stairs for the group. Enjoy.
