Enjoyed a very special meal. Two of us had the tasting menu, two where vegetarians and needed accommodation and one had a long list of food allergies. This is a challenge that not many restaurants can handle yet all of us had a great meal! Great flavours, beautiful presentation and spectular views. What’s not to love?
