Quite difficult to get a reservation so book early. Well worth the wait though, great choice of food and very friendly service.

Lively atmosphere, quite busy and crowded. Food choice was good as was the service, although a little slow. Early bird prices very good.

The service here was great, so friendly and full of suggestions for food/wine to accompany.
