We couldn't fault the food or the service the evening we visited. The lamb rump and pork loin were cooked to perfection with tasty sauces and a good selection of vegetables.

We were looking forward to our dinner at the bistro but were disappointed by the food - which does match what's offered on the menu or the decor. Our mains - the pork and lamb overcooked and dry, the jus overreduced, vegetables overcooked. The Te...More
