The food was beautifully presented and matched our taste buds’ expectations. The slow-roasted pork cheek sets the standard for “melt in your mouth” tenderness and flavour. All the dishes’ flavours were subtly infused, as opposed to the rich layering of sauces that fills you but doesn’t fill you; if you know what I mean.
Try this establishment, it’s the nexus of Good Food, Service and Atmosphere; without the aloof pretentiousness which can be the hallmark of fine-dining.
As I arrived the doorman escorted me in and took my coat. I was seated swiftly and given the wine list while I waited for my partner. The staff were attentive, prompt and very polite. Our orders were taken and everything arrived in a reasonable time. Not too quickly after each course but never felt I was waiting for the next course either.
I had the tuna for starter which was lovely and fresh. I’d the lamp for main also delicious, loved all the accompaniments with it. Could really see a lot of thought went into each dish. The lamb was so tender and I think my favourite lamb dish I’ve ever had out. My partner ordered the duck which they came back and said they had run out of which was disappointing. He re-ordered the venison instead and they offered to have the same accompaniments put with his new dish as would have been on the duck. Nice touch I thought.
I have the chocolate foundant for desert. Absolutely to die for, oozing with chocolate. The waiters were always ready to offer wine selections and constantly topping up our water and checking everything was going well.
The restaurant was always busy but never felt squashed or claustrophobic. The interior of the restaurant itself was very rustic and dim lighting made it quite romantic.
A little expensive so wouldn’t be coming here every week but would highly recommend it for a big occasion or any excuse at all really.
The meal was beautifully prepared and presented, and the surroundings warm and elegant.
I loved the high arched window in this private dining room, which allowed the light to flood the room, and made an excellent space to bring a business colleague for a 2 hour meal & meeting.
The wine was lovely, of course.
For a start Abba was playing Mama Mia. NOt saying it shouldn’t be played but the setting wasn’t right…. there were quite a few big groups – again OK but I think this meant that the staff were flat out serving the groups.
Because we had our main waiter leave a recommended bottle of wine on the table and that was it – he didn’t return to see if we wanted a glass… then the next waiter couldn’t open a screwtop closure on the wine I’d chosen… my husband opened it. Our initial waiter started talking business and swapping cards with people at the table next to ours.. just seemed tacky.
The food was still divine. Phew. The setting still amazing. But we left feeling we’d missed out on the usual experience.
We probably won’t go back unless we hear things are back up to standards past.
The food was very good as was the service. Unfortunately toward the end of our meal the owner & her daughter started stripping the tables around us & pushing them together making one large table that completely blocked us into a corner! We were definitely being rushed out & asked why. Apparently they had lost a booking for a large party that were waiting in the foyer. Would have been nice to have it explained to us instead of being made to feel like dinner guests who don’t know when to go home! I know owners get very proprietary with their restaurants, and yes, we know you own it, but if you don’t make your diners feel welcome they won’t come back.
The tables were way to close together and we had booked a week prior, and to top it all off the staff were very rude as i have been made to feel more welcome at burger king!
Thanks Martina and the team

Our waitress with black hair was very nice however the other blonde girl wasn’t so efficient, she seemed did not realize the restaurant was busy… Overall it is a great place to go in city for any occasions.
