My sister and I decided to take two of our closest friend here. I was blown away.. Great food, the ambiance was great. A bit expensive but with the service these guys offer , the money spent was worth it. we will be returning sometime in the near future.

My husband called ahead and we were informed that reservations are not needed, and the kitchen closes at 7:30p.m., so we should arrive and place our orders before then.
When we were searching for outdoor wedding venues, we considered the back area of the Coblentz Hotel, but it turned out to be too small when the guest list was sorted out. We heard of the restaurant from our visit and this was our first dining experience.
This place was spotless. The atmosphere is very intimate and our server was attentive. The portion sizes were well-sized - not too big that we couldn't finish our meals and not too small. We had the fish cakes, pumpkin soup, shrimp in tamarind sauce and chicken with mango chutney. Everything tasted great.
My only issue is that it was quite expensive, given the portion sizes.

Tried this restaurant one evening on word of mouth. We were the only diners, so it was very quiet with little atmosphere. Waitress/hotel receptionist was helpful. We perused a quite limited menu and ordered our meal. Prices were quite high for a place miles from anywhere.

Drinks were bought to us with a smile, soon followed by our meal. Food was ok without being really good, more drinks offered. We did not have a desert or coffee as it was dark outside and we had been warned about being out at night.

The bill came to about £50 but was overpriced to what we had to eat.

Staying in the hotel in which the restaurant is located I have been there several times. The food is good, prices a bit on the high side. The atmosphere is quite depressing. It is difficult to imagine that someone would come to this restaurant "on purpose"
