I visited your restaurant for the first time on Sat 8 6 19 and had a lovely evening. From our arrival we met only pleasant and helpful people. Everything was explained fully and although we were early we were made welcome.The food and wine were lovely. I have no hesitation recommending this restaurant and hope to visit again soon. Thank you all.

We had a delicious meal on Saturday lunchtime. The menu was delicious and it was really hard to decide what to have! I had the sea bass with squid ink risotto and it was so yummy! The staff were really attentive and friendly. Can’t wait to go back again!

We've dined here many times and we've never been disappointed. Compliments again to the front of house, bar staff, kitchen staff and of course to the Chef. Our clean plates are testimony to the excellent food served.

Starter far too salty. Octopus dry, chewy and overcooked. Main course far too salty. Sea bass fillet portion much too small. Wine mediocre and overpriced, even for Chester. Our first time dining here and a real disappointment.

All three of us ate the pre-theatre/lunch special (Chicken Schnitzel) accompanied by wine, fantastic as always. Cheese board and chocolate brownie were also outstanding. Great service.

Food and service never fail to impress here. Our server was very helpful in providing samples of wine by the glass for us to choose the one that suited us. The food was delicious and for the very high standard is very great value.
