We enjoyed very tasty lunchtime fare. From the broad menu we set off with borlotti bean minestrone soup with chorizo and crab mayonnaise on toast. Next up were sirloin steak on the hot stone and macaroni with poached chicken & parma ham and we shared...More

Was really looking forward to it but thought it was overpriced and disappointing. Staff were great but food was just okay

Awesome food. The fillet steak was so tender and perfectly cooked. This place does great cocktails too. Our waitress couldn’t have been friendlier or more attentive despite the restaurant being busy. If you like Old Fashioned cocktails you will love the smoked version.

Our hotel recommended we go here for seafood and Irish cuisine. It was neither but it was a pleasant surprise. It's a trendy happening place. The food (steak and shrimp for the most part) arrives on hot stones and "cooks" at your table. The cuts...More

I couldn't notice basic things that are required for every good service that this restaurant was lacking. Food was tasty, even though we thought that it was way too cold. There was not even check back done- so we just continued eating without acknowledging our...More

I've had nicer steaks from Tesco. Overall dining experience poor, food fair but overpriced. Staff unfriendly and moody. Long delays waiting for food.
