Visited on Valentine’s Day for the first time. Obviously it was busy, host was really lovely but waiting staff could of been more attentive during service instead of talking to each other by the kitchen. Food was delicious but not sure whether I will return.

Excellent food and service. Lovely outlook. Restaurant needs more wall furnishings because with a lot of customers it was very noisy at times
