Having read great things about their soft shell crab burger I was really looking forward to my visit. The food was good and the wine ok value, but as soon as we sat down we were told to order as we had to give the table back at 9.15pm. I hadn't seen any mention of this on their website so was a little surprised especially as half the tables were empty. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu and recommended the sea bass ceviche, which was very fresh but way too lemony. The grilled squid was good and we were constantly topped up with water and asked if everything was alright. Felt they were pushing us to rush our meal when we had two hours before we had to leave. The soft shell crab burgers were excellent but again having to order sides racked the bill up, thought it would at least come with fries on the side. The cherry pie a la mode that they make so much about on the menu was again excellent but half the size of a normal slice of pie, felt they were being very stingy! From about half eight the manager seemed to hover around the table as if to remind us to eat up which was annoying especially as there was no one queuing and again there were plenty of empty tables around us. At £200 for 4 people with only one bottle of wine we didn't feel the meal was great value and didn't feel full either.
