Went here as a group of six and found the staff very friendly and attentive. The food was nice and the cocktails were interesting! Good value and a nice experience overall.

Had a very nice meal here the other night. 6 adults. Starters were delicious. Wings had just the right amount of spice. The duck lacked in flavour. And wasn't filling enough for a main. Perhaps add something to it? Same goes for the steaks. Just needed a garnish or 2 to make it excellent. Desserts are nice but nothing too... More

Gorgeous food with a very reasonable Early Bird considering the quality of the food. I asked the waiter to recommend a good Red and he was very knowledgeable on all the different wines and their qualities helping me choose the exact one to compliment my meal there. Very intimate setting would recommend it for family couples and close friends.

The food was overpriced and uninspiring. The service was rather poor, the chap was friendly enough but obviously stressed out and I got my sides after the main. Tried to charge me extra for the sides and had to wait ten minutes to have this rectified as nobody seemed to want to deal with the issue. Poor. Might give it... More

Delicious food, wide and varied menu with options for various diet requirements. Service was quick and friendly, and there is a good selection of cocktails and alcoholic drinks. Highly recommended!

This wouldn't appeal to me 100% personally not faulting it but maybe it appeals to a different clientelle. In terms of taste the stake was 10/10 service 10/10 interior 10/10 in terms of price and portions I wouldn't give 10/10 but maybe they are aiming at a different market

Delicious food. Excellent service. Friendly staff. Beautiful building. Very clean and well maintained. Good location near city centre, pubs, clubs and attractions close by. Early bird deals available so always good to call ahead. Prices are fair for what you get. Have eaten here for a romantic evening for two, meeting friends and family occasions, all of which this restaurant... More

We arrived at the cornmarket last night without any reservation. The Gentleman at the desk informed us that there wasn't and available table's, but siad he'd check to see if there was anything he could do. He asked a lady working there (i think it was his manager). She was really friendly and went upstairs to see if she could... More
