Very good quality/price ratio. Modern desgin and nice atmosphere. The food was delicous. The mains are not very big, so if you're a "big eater" don't forget to order sides. The staff was very friendly. Don't forget to book ahead. We can really recommend it.More

Warm welcome by all staff, beautifully decorated and comfortable seating in booth large enough for 8. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Efficient service and lovely food. Decent wine list for variety and price. Level of background music pleasant enough for chatting without raising voices.More
