We attended a wedding here & it was a lovely setting. The food was only ok though, the pork belly was dry & the stuffing in the chicken dish was like eating raw dough! The staff were friendly & the outlook was excellent.

Service cannot be faulted, but unfortunately the food has gone downhill. We’ve given it a few goes just to make sure it wasn’t just an off night.. sorry guys.

Would not recommend this restaurant, service appalling, food appalling, felt like food court dining experience not fine dining at all, no one of any authority there to over see operations and manage the floor. Would not recommend this restaurant nor will I be returning.
