Alpha is consistently good quality and interesting modern Greek food with excellent service. The food can tend to be quite rich with oils and cheese so be careful about balancing what you order. All of the traditional Greek dips are excellent and the meats and fish are cooked to perfection. Their list of excellent Greek wines adds to the experience. Alpha has a somewhat high noise level when full but not nearly as bad as some noisey restaurants that are unbearable. Highly recommended! More

Had a very enjoyable lunch at Gowings Bar & Grill. We shared our mains, which made it possible to experience more than one plate. The food was delicious and well presented. My two disappointments were the lack of accompaniments with the main meals. I don't like being forced to order extras to a meal, these should be "nice to haves". Like a lot of venues, they have a view that everyone likes loud music. I'd be curious to know if they did a survey of their customers if they actually do. More

The place was okay, I enjoyed the escargots entree topped by a well made sauce! The steak & fries was alright, sauce however was good still, but the meat itself felt lacking in flavour, or not enough seasoning. Fries didn’t taste as fresh as it could’ve been. The location of the restaurant is great! And I can imagine how lovely it would be for lunch as the sun shines into the place, however the place feels a bit too dim in lighting and especially for the name of the restaurant: Ananas (pineapple) I felt like it could be much more well lit and lighting more optimistic. Waiter seemed a bit too nervous, could slow down a bit in order to be more in control. Overall it was a good dining experience :) More

The Lobo Plantation is primarily a premium cocktail bar with a deep and abiding love for all things rum. Don't worry though, we do stock all other major spirits as well as beer, wine, cider, etc. We have a bar menu available if you're feeling hungry however food is definitely not our major focus - we're all about the awesome cocktails and great service!More

This is our favourite restaurant. We go to many hatted & other restaurants & always come back to Sokyo as the best every year. The waiters are well informed, service attentive but not intrusive, menu both food & wine extensive & food simply delicious. We tell the waiter of our preferences for about 2 dishes & leave it to the chef to surprise us with the remainder. We have never been disappointed. If you like Japanese food this is the one. More

Very friendly people. We sat at the bar which surrounded the chefs. We had the 12 course tasting dinner and every dish was beautifully and creatively prepared with an explanation from the chef that prepared it. Great use of local ingredients. Expensive, but so worth it. More

great experience overall a few things weer not perfect but completely forgotten (the waiter did not give us a wine list, there was nobody to welcome us at 6pm when we arrive and the barman had to leave the bar to come and welcome us, there was no announcement of the food, the mussels were literally half empty and this was a disappointing dish ) More
