Restaurant
“If you fancy a special meal at a Michelin Star restaurant, this is the place to visit. Booking is a must. We haven't been for a while, but we always felt it was good value for money. Yes expensive, but not as expensive as other Michelin Star'd restaurants. We also recommend getting a taxi there, and back. The only alternative is to get a bus, or drive.”
