Ok food, but not great. The vegetables they served were especially unimaginative. I don't think it's that hard to make vegetables taste great, but they certainly didn't manage. Also, as others have said, it was very cold in the restaurant!

This is an unpretentious little place. It doesn't look much but the food was excellent. I had local caught scallops followed by salmon and crab - delicious. There is a decent wine-list. Louise was running the front-of-house show and did a fantastic job.

This might be some of the best food I've had! Sourced locally, gourmet, and not overly pricey ... Very nice ambiance down to the fresh rose on each table - I highly recommend!!!
