Wonderful lunch, will definitely be back. Steak was so good, great selection of wine. Must bring Dad - he was born above the shop next door!

Had a great night for our anniversary. Food was super, so was the wine. Eden was also a highlight!

Booked restaurant at last minute online. Manager couldn't have been more helpful arranging a table to suit our specific requirements. He even took the time to phone us and discuss our needs. On arrival we were greeted by the manager to ensure our table was suitable. Food was excellent and great value. Have not had a better steak in a long time. Service was friendly and efficient and price very good. Can thoroughly recommend and it won't be long before we return.

Fabulous lunch for my son's birthday with my best friends. The service was friendly, helpful and not in the least intrusive. We have, as a family, dined with you quite often and will continue to do so.

Was just awful obviously major problem yesterday in the kitchen. Flat coke cold soup after 60 mins wait poor meat. No Yorkshire pudding left. So bad we couldn’t risk going back.

We brought visitors from Scotland- they loved it. Only slight issue, which staff are aware of is that, when seated at tables in the back section, the smoke from the kitchen can really irritate your eyes after a while - would not stop us from going back - again and again. Looking forward to the Belfast restaurant opening soon!

The only negative was receiving an email telling me to vacate the table for 9:30 and the consequences of a booked taxi sitting waiting and the meter ticking over.

We were there for a birthday - made to feel welcome from the word go. We didn't get the name of the guy who was FOH but he was lovely-great reccomendations on both food and wine and chat beyond the usual niceties from a waiter. We'd been waiting to go for a while and the food didn't disappoint. Would thoroughly recommend if you like Steak

Our favourite eatery in Northern Ireland - the manager Daryl adds a special addition of efficiency, professionalism and warmth to the restaurant. We will return.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. We visited on Monday evening and thats the reason for 4 stars for atmosphere ( a little quiet) but can imagine the atmosphere being 5 stars later in the week when it would be busier. Starter main course dessert all very good. The Sunday Lunch menu looks good so will likely try that soon as we can.

Even though I declined the offer of tasting the wine, I thought that after ordering 2 bottles that they should have at least opened them. I think an 8 oz fillet steak no matter how good it is, is over priced especially with what it comes with. Food also arrived very very quickly. Starter arrived 2 mins after ordering.

The food was spectacular. The service manages to be both professional and personable - very few places manage to pull that off. The manager Daryl visited our table at least 3 times and made us feel very welcome. Can't wait to return and looking forward to the Belfast opening.
