This was the first place we came to after a short walk from our hotel. As it was raining we dived inside to a friendly welcome despite this being our random choice. The mains were excellent, the desserts not quite top class but pretty good....More

I was hoping for more based on the reviews but, unfortunately, we must have hit a bad night. Service wasn't great although the servers did their best - I think they were inexperienced with little training. After a very quick first course serving, the main...More
