My husband and I had a meal there on Saturday evening. We ate "a la carte " as it was our wedding anniversary. We both had pork terrine which was lovely and very filling. I then had very tender lamb fillet and my husband had a rib eye steak. Neither of us could finish our meal so our dog has... More

As ever a superb meal but rather let down by the service from the older of the two waitresses whose attitude was bordering on rude!!!! It will not stop us going back as it is a restaurant we regularly visit, we will just hope it is on that waitresses night off!!!

A fantastic restaurant with excellent food and staff. Service was superb. We had a tight schedule and the staff catered for us. We will return when we have more time to savour the food and atmosphere. Great place

We visited this lovely, bright, modern restaurant on a week night and were very pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant was busy but not overcrowded, we had booked though on recommendation but had been told that this was not always necessary before 9pm. We were warmly greeted by Isabella who was quietly knowledgeable about the menu and wine list.... More

Yet again another lovely meal! Cost just over 46€ for 3 courses on the set menu, with a drink each and a bottle of wine. If you like fine dining and don't want to feel bloated then this lovely restaurant will be for you.

They still doa menu del dia at 17EUR, which i had, and this was equally good, although i think my wifes choices from the a la carte... More

Place unlike to the others. First of all the eye catches the impressive design and artworks. A warm welcome and attentive service. Shock returns again together with the plates, another state of art! Fish, meat, sauces all was perfect, all fresh, homemade and of finest quality. I recommend the place to those, who likes the real food, fresh food, homemade... More
