The food is fantastic and the service spot on. I would highly recommend the steak cooked in salt!! tho could do with a chicken dish for those who are slightly pickier with food.

A bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort of finding for a special occasion meal. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and the taste didn't let the promise of good things to come down.
