Had the 5 course tasting menu, which was delicious and well worth the money. Highlight was the marron, in the most amazing sauce. Small mix up with our booking but we were easily accommodated, and our waitress' service was fantastic throughout the night.

My partner eats a medium to large appetite and he felt satisfied by the end of the tasting menu. Tasting menu dishes are smallish, but we thought it was enough foo for the average man, & the quality was wonderful.
