Went in with my parents and my son. We all ate from the 2 course deal menu. The food was second to none. Absolutely outstanding. Delicious and so fresh. The service was also outstanding so friendly and polite, have already recommended to friends and family and am looking forward to making an excuse to go back! Outstanding.
