Beautiful setting, kind staff and great food. Portion size not in proportion to price, I felt they could definitely have served more fillet for $41. I have eaten better quality meat for half the price. Vegan options available.

Quiet dinner for two. Very attentive service and great food. Reasonably priced. Only open for dinner at weekends, so be careful to book ahead.
