  • Well firstly I would like to say wow! My partner and I found this lovely little restaurant a beautiful way to spend our date night. It has a kind of Bistro à la Française feeling about it. The food was divine, wine was amazing and don't get me started on the desserts. The crème brûlée was stunning and I did manage to have a spoonful of the fruit Crumble which was just as good as mine. A big thank you to the most amazing waiter who came from Brittany, France. We had a wonderful experience here and will definitely be back very soon.

  • Read on the web that the lamb dishes served in restaurant are award winning , so we decided to have lamb for dinner, and I must agree lamb was amazing (we are not lamb meat lovers but we loved it) Service was top notch ! Definitely would come back for dinner.
