Friends took us so that I could eat the truffle pasta and it was amazing. The atmosphere and food was excellent. We had a taste of all the dishes on the table and everyone was great.

This restaurant has a wonderful ambiance of "old world charm" but with modern cuisine and service par excellence.The person I went with is a regular patron and so the staff knew her taste in wine. I ate Kingclip in a wonderful sauce served baby asparagus and a delicate mille feuille for dessert. Somewhere to visit for a special occasion.

Recommended by our hotel, The Peech, and just a 10 minute taxi away. Off the main road in a secure building. Well appointed, good service and the food was as good Italian as I have tasted. I said italian with a twist as my starter of carpaccio had japanese wasabi flavours, absolutely delicious as was the rest of our meal.... More

Has the peri-peri livers for starter, with seared salmon on asparagus for mains. Livers had the perfect mix of texture and taste, while the salmon was prepared perfectly. Calm atmosphere, good waiters and tasty food make for a great lunch.

We often go to this restaurant but lately it just does not seem the same. Firstly because the tables are so close to each other if you are unfortunate enough to have a table of rowdy diners next to you it makes it extremely difficult to hear the conversations at the table. The staff are always very pleasant and accommodating... More

I found the location quite unusual. Staff efficient but not particularly interested. Very good Caprese salad. Pasta got good reviews from friends. The salmon cakes were delicious but I found the tarragon sauce overpowering. Good wine list. All in all not a memorable experience. Management were nowhere to be seen. Staff efficient but not particularly friendly. Atmosphere bland. With so... More

The service at this restraurant was excellent, the waiters are extremely well trained. The food was of very good quality. My partner had the beer battered fish and chips and I had the grilled chicken salad. We didn't feel rushed although we hadn't booked and it was a busy Saturday lunch time. Particularly loved their homemade bread on the table,... More

Sit outside under a huge tree - exemplary service coupled with a simple yet creative and constantly changing Specials menu. We have now been going there for years and would recommend unreservedly. Sunday lunchtime booking essential. You will be thrilled!
