Excellent food, friendly professional hosts and knowledgeable staff. Enjoyed one of the best overall meals for some time. In challenging times when the restaurant sector needs every support, it is great to see that from beginning to end, everything was faultless and superb.

Really bad food , the chicken was burnt and had no flavour , also the wild rice was very salty and not cooked at all , overall the food was bland and salty , the butternut squash purè was good though.

Could not fault your place. Waiters were very nice & respectful, wore masks but could tell they were always smiling. Atmosphere was lovely & decor was cool. Just perfect for a girly catch up over dinner. Would’ve loved one or two more sweeter cocktail options, just as it would be the perfect addition for a girly treat! But overall had a fantastic time. Also the doughnuts were yum!
