Great venue and service. Eaten and entertained at a couple of their restaurants. Sadly this time my steak was cooked to death. My medium rare came very well done.

We were recommended this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The steaks were excellent cooked to perfection. The waiters and staff were extremely friendly. There’s music and great atmosphere. It’s a good location opposite the river.
