We dropped in for a light lunch with friends from George who recommended the restaurant. The salmon twirls listed as starts were perfectly adequate for light lunch, whilst the main course Mediterranean calamari was an excellent choice for the more hungry. The food and wine was enjoyable, the coffee excellent.

Visited this restaurant on Saturday 28th January withour friends who are regulars of the restaurant. We had a lovely evening, the food was excellent and we were served by a charming waitress. The restaurant has a lot of loyal local customers. You won't be disappointed.

I have had a number of dinners at this restuarant and can honestly say that I have never been disappointed, the ambiance is great and the seating areas are wonderful for intimate meals where you don't feel exposed. The food generally is of a very high standard.
