About Annabel's at Boclair
Had a very enjoyable meal. Food was delicious and well presented. Staff very pleasant. Gorgeous venue. However, the background music was rather irritating,(elevator music) and lacking a bit of atmosphere due to the restaurant being empty, that said, it was an early dinner offer during the week. Will definitely go back.
Great Sunday Lunch
We had the roast lamb. Absolutely delicious. Lovely surroundings. Will definitely go back.
