A wonderful evening, excellent starters, super steaks and amazing chef's petit fours with our coffee. The service was excellent - very helpful, friendly staff - an amazing meal in a wonderful atmosphere. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant - it is our favourite to celebrate a special occasion or just because it is the weekend!
