We had a meal for a biggish group here, everyone enjoyed their choices very much-good meat, fish and sides-portions just right, and lovely puddings to follow. Staff didn't pester us for more drinks or asking questions. Just right.

Told a 30 minute wait for a table but almost o0 minutes. Stood at the bar for 30 minutes. Food was delicious but it's a Very noisy restaurant. Practically impossible to have a conversation. Not sure I'd come back. Spectacular views though.
