This restaurant has changed since it opened. It is more into full meals as opposed to its wide selection of starter dishes. That said it is still a fresh and clean place to dine in. The staff are pleasant and efficient. An average priced place...More

Lovely meal. Fist time for me at an IS restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed everything I had and so did my companions. We shared most of the dishes so got to sample loads. We're the only people in the place which was a surprise considering how good...More
