This restaurant is pricey but the food and service is outstanding. The white linen tablecloths are tiered so every table has a view of the river. Women receive a small gift when leaving.More

My Aunt can't eat garlic and they made her meal choice specfic for her needs. This restuarant works to help with your meal choices. Best to ring and discuss so they can plan your nenu around your requests.

yes it is priced per person, if you are not driving choosing the accompanying wine flight is a fantastic option but be prepared to settle in for a relaxed evening.
