Hi Mr/Mrs Craven, Thank you for taking the time to write this review and please allow me to explain what that was all about: I was the partner that greeted you at the door that evening and I regret, as I always do when we lose business, that we could not accommodate you immediately and you chose to dine elsewhere....

Incredible steak and great atmosphere. I think we were the last people in the restaurant. The owner was constantly checking up on us, very welcoming. The staff was amazing as well. Food was divine. Will return many times.

Great food - but all the extras make the final bill a bit much - wines are a bit pricey as well but overall a great restaurant . Would recommend the restaurant to friends and tourists

Hi jpechey1, thanks for your review and comments, we do have a large selections of wines to suit most pockets. Our main dishes include a choice of four different sides but sauces and extra toppings are traditionally an extra cost. Hope this was helpful, Regards Alan Lazarus More

The food is okay. Also fine service. Central located on busy street. Almost no complaints, but the fish wasn't perfectly, was it really catch of the day or was it yesterday's?
