There was a queue to get in both nights we were there. (usually a good sign!) The restaurant is mcuh bigger than it appears from the outside so there is plenty of space. The food was delicious and the service excellent.

We are so disappointed with this restaurant: it took soooo long to get our food, people that arrived after us got it before us. All was dry and no qualitative meat. No apologies from the staff, we were trying to be friendly at first but...More
