    Very beautiful setting and friendly staff. The food was amazing as well. I had the ribs and my partner had the steak risoto, both dishes were top quality. Would definitely visit again.

    The live music was way too loud! We could not hear each other at all and had to wait until the end of the song to finish our conversations. Apart from that is was an enjoyable evening.

    I was very disappointed. I have been to the Restaurant quite a few times before Covid - my experience was very good then - the food was good and so too the service. This time however was not a good one. The drinks too long to get to us - then we had to wait a while for our starters - then again our steaks took a while too. I had an out of town guest that I raved to about the steaks - even calling it the best I’ve had - but on the night - it just wasn’t so. The meat was dry - I had to order sauces after the steaks arrived to make it less dry. I ordered my steak medium-rare - which was more medium-well when I got it - which I sent back - when I got it back - I was given to me on my original plate I sent back with the original side on - not a new side. We asked for hot sauce like Tabasco Sauce - we were just told they didn’t have. The restaurant is in the City Lodge Hotel - could the Server not check with them if they had one they could use? I don’t know if it was because I had Hyperli vouchers that we were treated like this. The only thing that made our stay bearable, is the 2 man Jazz band playing on the evening. Quinton Timmes

    I felt the waiter could have been more present to give us a better experience. It seemed as if he had too much on his plate.
