Been many times and always great meals wonderfully presented and fantastic value for money. Had soup of the day and the serving was at least double what was expected. Oven baked salmon was exceptional as always. Everyone else thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We are very priveleged to to have this quality restaurant in our town.
