We've been here several times now and it never disappoints. The food is excellent and the service is perfect - friendly and efficient. It's not cheap but is worth every penny.

I could spend ages discussing the music, the lighting, the deco, the chairs etc, but I'm going to cut to the chase. When choosing a restaurant it's easy to be lured by plush seating, seductive lighting and expensive decor, and if your looking for this...More
