This restaurant deserves your attention. The menu is not extensive, but every dish is exquisitely prepared. The taste combinations are excellent. The wine list is well thought out. The staff are attentive, yet unobtrusive. Be prepared for elegant dining at it's best.

We pre booked dinner as we knew we would not arrive at the hotel until early evening. We really enjoyed the 3 course meal and the wine was a reasonable price for a hotel. We would both stay and eat here again.
