Came here for high tea to celebrate a family member's birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive. The only possible negative is the lack of parking available for guests dining in the restaurant but not staying in house.

Waitress was friendly and accommodating but that was the only saving grace. Ordered a 200g filet medium rare and got a 150g well done filet. My husband wanted medium rare as well, and his ribeye was blue. If they were busy I'd understand somewhat, but there were only two tables to cook for so shouldn't be difficult to get it... More

Tried the scallops for entree and crispy skin salmon for main followed by pear tarte tatin for dessert. Everything tasted quite nice and appropriate to the dish but a little bland at times. May visit again if I'm near the restaurant/on the street. Service could improve a little but nothing extremely shabby. I understand that this restaurant is new? So... More

We ate here with a family group of 5 while staying at this lovely place and after ordering breads/entree/main to be served in that order, waited an hour and 10 mins for the entree to be delivered first and were told the bread would be out with the main as they forgot it. At this stage we didnt even have... More

Breakfast was included with our stay so we thought it might be a buffet breakfast but it wasn't. We could help ourselves to coffee, tea and juices but the meals were picked from the menu. There wasn't a separate kids menu but we did find something suitable for everyone. Two of our kids had waffles which were delicious although both... More
