Once inside you enter a gorgeous world of flowers, tapestries and elegance without feeling like it was designed by and for the wealthy born before 1950. The food and service were perfect...diverse food from a regularly changed menu with truly exotic deserts. Suoerbly done.

Classy restaurant. Great service the staff really looked after us on our wedding anniversary lunch. We had the wine pairing lunch - highly recommended the sommelier was very knowledgeable and I think it was good value overall. Highly recommended!
