    Went here for our one year anniversary and pre-arranged a booth. The whole team was easy to deal with, polite and very friendly. We had a lovely experience (as a couple that wouldn’t fine dine often) and will definitely be back in the future. I would highly recommend for anyone celebrating a special occasion.

    Disappointing standard of food for the prices, lacking in flavour and execution . Cold elements on mains , crab starter not to my liking and dessert a let down . Service excellent , total bill for two with one non drinker was 170 euro excluding tip . I won’t be back .

    Great meal! Service was excellent, friendly and unobtrusive. Loved our table, was perfect for having a conversation without shouting, so was very private too. The lighting at our table was a little bland it could have been improved with a small central light source, just to improve the ambience? This is just a minor criticism and not of any real importance. Overall, it was excellent

    Elegant refined food with excellent staff. Selected this venue for the location and food but in particular for the ability to have a conversation over dinner without blaring music which is a feature of so many other venues. As usual this restaurant delivers superbly on all fronts.

    Outstanding dinner, menu tasting with six courses fabulous. Only weak point was the buillon, which in my opinion wasn’t fitting very well with the rest of meal; but regarding the taste and flavours was very nice. Service was top, the male manager really knows how to look after customers, with small jokes and fun fact. All of the staff was super friendly and nice. I wouldn’t be surprised if this place would have a Michelin Star!
