Bit of a mish mash

We were a group of eight, and enjoyed the all in experience. Food was ok but not to everyone's taste. Some good plates but some just had too many flavours mashed together. Great wines to be had but a little pricey. The setting is very nice.

Agree that this restaurant is a bit hit and miss. Overall we liked our food but there needs to be more attention paid to details considering the prices charged.
