Everything was PERFECT, but sadly my panini was ‘Luke warm’. The cheese hadn’t melted & the panini itself wasn’t hot enough…….sorry, because the whole ambience was FANTASTIC and the service & staff were exceptional.

We enjoyed our lunch very much. Only one minor criticism: both my sandwiches and my wife’s had one section where the bread was stale - as if it had been left out in the air too long or had been left next to a source of heat,

Only 3 people in the queue ahead of me, yet it took 15 minutes from being given my food order to paying for it Might not seem long but when you are time limited at table it's a huge chunk of it! Plenty of room for improvement there I think Otherwise very enjoyable
