On a Friday night I would've expected this place to be really busy, but after my experience I can see why there were only 4 people in the restaurant. Very expensive for an ordinary meal. Avoid

Fantastic selection of up-scale food and drink in a uniquely classic setting. Service was great, and we look forward to returning in the future.

The lure of this restaurant is to “dine like a sugar baron.” I’m not sure about that! The restaurant is located upstairs in an attached section of the main house. The dining room is small, therefore, if you are joined by other diners, you can...More

I am very sorry your portions were smaller. Nothing was done to change the size of portions. Hopefully, it was simply a mistake.

Reviewed 31 December 2017

Yes, the food was good. But the portions were minuscule. The menu is described as "prix fixe" but it actually a "tasting" menu. Believe me, all you get is a "taste." $65 for three courses was a rip off. Let's break it down..... At $65...More
