The Good

An excellent tasting menu that is a strong contender for my top five meals and which featured no misses. Very attentive service that included the sommelier leaving the restaurant to hail me a taxi after the meal.

The Okay

None.

The Bad

None.

The Ugly

The loudest, most obnoxious woman I have ever come across with the worst laugh I have ever heard sitting next to us. Although it looked like she was going out of her way to ruin our meal for my wife and I, towards the end we appreciated her entertainment value as the alcohol evidently became too much for her and arguments ensued with her father about the running of the family business.
