    Food was fantastic and the service was impeccable however I was a little disappointed that they didn't acknowledge that I was celebrating my 50th birthday with my family. My mum asked the waiter if they were willing to give me a glass of prosecco on the house but the manager said no. Considering how expensive the meal was, we thought that was quite mean. If youre going there for a special occasion dont expect anything!! Apart from that the restaurant is lovely.

    Waiters aren’t assigned tables they just wander around. Waiting for the bill for 15 minutes, music wayyy too loud. Sprayed some random perfume in the middle of the restaurant every 15 minutes which was too strong.

    Food is good, but not sure whether it’s worth it for the price. Starters tasted unique but main was nothing special. Was well presented and the service was excellent. We was disappointed that there was no entertainment as website states there would be. It just felt like a normal restaurant. The high price point of the menu makes sense because you are paying for ambience, entertainment (belly dancer etc) and atmosphere but there was no evidence of this. Shame really because we travelled a fair distance for not just food but atmosphere. Would we return? Prob not as the restaurant didn’t feel any different to any other high end restaurant.

    Thursday night was not the best night to attend, only 5 tables booked, no entertainment and at approx £90 a head with only a couple of alcohol drinks to the table, it was a very expensive evening with very little effect!!! If money is no problem then everything else was satisfactory!

    Very load music during lunch time, unnecessary. Food was ok. Drinks- asked for a pint of beer the waiter said ok and bring a small bottle. We would appreciate if we would be told that they don’t do pints. Overall overpriced wouldn’t recommend .

    It was way too loud. The food was horrendous and the service is terrible. Why was I waiting over an hour for my food and closing time was at 12. I was definitely not happy.

    The waiter was really nice and friendly- made us laugh and was chatty. The atmosphere was very boring and quiet though. The food was tasty but our starters were cold and I’d say it was pricey for what we got. Cocktails were lovely!

    The food was very good and the waiters were very attentive. We went and had the lunch menu for my best friends birthday, which seemed to be good value but the bill came and it was almost £100 for the two of us, even though the lunch menu was supposed to be around £25pp, due to the add ons, like fries and drinks, bearing in mind none of us had alcohol, only 1 mocktail each. Other than the price, everything was lovely :)

    Upon arrival we was delighted by the venue, the ambience and style. However, given the fact we was sent a message by email of the strict dress code, we was disappointed to see customers wearing trainers and gym wear. We took a lot of trouble to dress up and felt a little let down. I realise it may have been relaxed for Father’s Day. The food was good however again disappointed that no child’s menu was available and paying £30 for a child who didn’t like the roast and therefore ate nothing, was a little hard. Overall, the music was amazing and the cocktails lush. Would like to come back on a evening instead
