Excellent food quality with a strong European slant. Varied menu to cater for most. Not cheap but worth the money. Service was fine. I had wonderful fried oysters with a super house sauce, quite unique. The beef was excellent quality and vegetable content was fine....More

I stayed in a graduate queen queen and just 2 queen beds, big enough for average adults. The room I stayed in was nice and I would stay again. I am also very picky on where I stay and cleanliness is very important to me.
