The food was great. The wine fitted well with the food. Service was friendly but of a high standard. The view from the restaurant added to the dining experience. High end dining, but all things considered, exceptionell value.

A starter of smoked salmon terrine and orange glazed prawns followed by prawn bisque cream, line fish, salt and pepper calamari, salmon caviar and baby marrow spaghetti. Dishes that were exquisitely crafted and delicious, with amazing service. Still, a favorite
