I came to this restaurant on the reccomendation of a friend and I was pleasantly surprised in many ways.

We came into a vibrant ground floor bar with the usual city types drinking a mixture of champagne and cocktails and had a look at the cocktail list - we decided to try a raspberry something and it was great.

Our reservation was for 8.00, there was a slight delay due a couple of tables running late, but the maitre D found us (not easy in a busy bar!) and let us know what was going on, he was perfectly charming and reassured us in a professional manner.

When we sat down for dinner, we decided to have a liver pate flambeed with whisky and my partner had a salmon and lobster parcel - they were fantastic, full of flavour! we then had our mains: the beef fillet for me rare of course and the better half had the special of venison medallions - again fantastic!

The service on the night was punctual and attentive as these waiters seemed to genuinely care if we were enjoying our meal. After dessert of Chivas Regal ice cream we retired to the DOON bar with our friendly maitre D' in escourt.

Here we had some more cocktails and left around 1 o'clock thoroughly satisfied, I've since read some of the reviews this place has had and wonder if they were in the same restaurant as my experience and that of my better half was fantastic. I'll definitely be back.
