Perfect spot for a lazy afternoon to catch up with a friend. The food is good and the service too! The restaurant is at a great location but parking was a bit of a problem but we came alright after driving around.

Enjoyable setting and very good food. Restaurant is a little pricey, particularly the wine prices which are excessive. The Asian Pork Belly is a stunning dish, perfectly cooked, great sauce, best pork belly I've had anywhere in a long time.
