Reasonably busy for a Thursday evening but the staff are excellent . My son and I have similar tastes food wise so the small starter of mixed olives was followed by a "flat iron steak" done to perfection and washed down with a bottle of Innis & Gunn. With food and service of this quality it is best to book in advance to save disappointment.
The Apartment is a great restaurant with a really nice and relaxed vibe, whilst remaining classy and elegant. The staff are also extremely friendly and welcoming, however I was really disappointed with my main, there was no sauce or flavour and it wasn't a good piece of fish.
My second visit here in less than 2 months. First time had the supper menu and this time had the skewers - food excellent! Amazing tasting big green olives to start too. Beautiful bread and best ever olive oil to dip in! Preferred my tiramisu cheesecake not in a glass, and also preferred to eat it with teaspoon that came with my tea rather than the huge spoon that was provided. Would def go back again
