Excellent food and great service. They also have the nice little touches like the canapés on arrival and bread rolls. Lobster was lovely and pickled onions with the oysters was amazing.

Had booked this restaurant in advance. It is pricey but the food is excellent. Fish soup very good, sashimi (wasabi was too hot for our taste). Main courses sole and scallops excellent. Nice roomy tables, good wine, cocktails etc.

We had fish soup and also two kinds of fish; both were good, but not unusual. Dessert was delicious. Service and atmosphere were good. Reasonably priced.

Haven't been here for a while, and the quality of the evening reminded us why it had been one of our favourite restaurants in town. The food looks as good as it tastes, and our waitress, Tiffany, was ever so good.

The food, service, and entire experience was a true delight until... The staff avoided any mention of their faulty credit card machine until it was time to pay. We had started silently wondering about the three other tables asking about paying by cheque. We then...More
