The restaurants was empty at lunchtime and was quite cold and lacking character. The menus were not exciting and frankly the food was very average. We will not be back as there are much better and more interesting restaurants within 3/5 kms.

We were staying in the area and visited this restaurant on one of the evenings they were opened. The set menus were varied in both price and choice and there was something for everyone, even some very good vegetarian choices. Would definitely visit again.
