    As always, our dining experience was second to none. I hade to change our booking 4 times during the week due to some of our party coming down with flu/Covid, and every time, they were very obliging and sent notifications of our changed status so everything was transparent, our waiter was very professional and the food simply wonderful. 5* dining.....we'll be back :-)

    Reallly enjoyed our lunch. Food was great. Staff very good - friendly and helpful. The place is very expensive though, but that’s what it is these days.
