Good meal, does not really cater for veggies, my son had to have fish. Good food and very good wine list. Bit of gripe all squeezed into the outside and inside front area, back and upstairs empty.

Grudgingly admitted to a three-quarters empty restaurant after the "do you have a reservation?" tomfoolery [if I had one, I'd have said so!]. Restaurant still only half full [and lower room empty!] as we left after our meal. Meal of indifferent quality and disproportionately expensive....More
