Having previously dined here 4years ago on our honeymoon I decided to go back to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. I had booked several months ago for the Saturday night. There was 7 of us dining. When we arrived the gentleman working the floor was surprised to see us, I said that I had booked several months ago and left my number but they didn't phone to confirm although they did confirm at the time by email. There were only 2 staff on the floor, they also had to work the bar so getting their attention for drinks etc was hard work, definitely not their fault just extremely understaffed, that said the restaurant wasn't near full. When we ordered we did have quite a wait, but when the food arrived it was amazing. Everyone was in agreement, we all had 3 courses and each course was as good as the previous one. There were 2 chefs dining with us, one of which was my husband and they both really enjoyed it. They even had a candle stuck in my husbands dessert and we sang happy birthday. Great wee touch. Would definitely return as food was first class, but definitely need more front of house staff on. The gentleman that did serve us and took our orders was excellent. We will hopefully see yous again when we return

Thank you for your review. Great to hear how much you enjoyed your meal. Im sorry the service was not up to scratch, this is not normal practice for us. Im sure the lack of staff on the day would have been due to sickness or special circumstances. We hope to see you again soon.

We strolled along this restaurant and it looked very inviting so we opted to have dinner here. We were not dissapointed! Everything was very tasteful and wonderfully presented, both the entrees and the mains. Accompanied with a nice bottle of red wine, we had a great evening. We will be back!

Loved this restaurant. The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. Have eaten in some very fine restaurants and this one is very good competition. I had the turbot on a bed of saffron risotto and it was amazing. My husband had the slow braised beef and it was also delicious. Would definitely go here again. The only negative was that my husband wanted a cocktail and they said that they were too busy but offered to make a wonderful gin and tonic, which it was.

We have been regular customers for many years but felt the front of house service fell short back last summer under the new manager. So, pleased to see Jorges and Desiree back in charge. We spent Christmas Day here and enjoyed superb food, beautifully presented, and excellent service. Live music by Vicki Reid was fabulous.
We returned for dinner the following week and noticed some very good new dishes on the a la carte menu with the loin of pork being excellent. Tapas are also available in the beautiful bar area. No hesitation in recommending.
