This restaurant came highly recommended and for good reason. We had a table near the river which sets a romantic mood. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was prepared to perfection and had a lovely presentation. Reservations are recommended.

A wonderful find. Try to get a table by the window with the river view! Excellent wine selection. The presentation is beautiful and you can ask for the sauce on the side! We had such a good meal that we went back 2 nights later!

Another flawless 3 courses at this excellent resto. We've been coming for maybe 4 years and its always the best food and service for miles around. A little pricey and the menu has never changed but, wonderful never the less. Keep up the good work.
