One reviewer wrote: "Fabulous views, relaxed atmosphere, excellent food. We couldn’t have asked for a better lunch, the service was super friendly but not familiar.

"I had celeriac soup with almond, and truffle, my daughter had duck croquette which said was delicious. We both had fish of the day which was cod with crushed potatoes and saffron and it was amazing."

Another posted: "This is the best tasting menu I have tasted, if anything I think it was one dish too many, and that is rare to say in a high dining restaurant. The highlights were the langoustine, Pate terrine, lamb. I can’t fault one course at all."
