The most recent dinner was a party of 8 for a birthday.
We were sat quickly at our table and found the staff to be courteous and tentive. The restaurnat is small but not in a cramped way and was not noisy.
The food was a mixture of what one might call hits and misses. That is not to say that the food was bad but rather the restaurant seeks to hit certain heights. The foie gras is superb and definitely one to try. On the flip side, my pheasant was rather tough and was accompanied by a macaroon – which is sweet as a desert let alone a main course. Throw in some sweet vegatable puree and you start to wonder which course you were eating. Desert was very tasty indeed.
In additon, they were more than accomodating with dietary requirements for one of our group.
At the end of the night it was a case of mixed feelings for all. For the cost, you want a feeling of must come back but on this occassion it was one of seeing the potential without quite getting there.
