In an old house. Nice. They offer the usual high-end stuff, steaks, fish etc. It is all quite good – and expensive. I suggest it for a destination if you are going to dress up and go to some special place. They offer Sunday brunch.

Hi - Just saw this question. I was there for Sunday brunch and people were dressed in "dressy casual." It is very elegant, and suitable for dressing up (!) if you wish.
