A group of us went to the fatted calf restaurant for a friends birthday. Everybody was impressed. Modern, funky decor with excellent food, beautiful wine. Portions are on the small side though. Food tastes so good, I definitely could have eaten more.

Tried this place by chance after doing some shopping and we both had to say it was up there with one of the tastiest lunches we ever had. Would love to try their evening menu next time in the area.
