    Tasty but expensive

    I've been here many times and most of the time the food is great. On this occasion most of the dishes were delicious, though there were a few questionable aspects. The price of the set meal has gone up by £2, still with many supplements on the menu and some of the portion sizes have gotten smaller. That's the part that bothered me. The mussels were lovely, however I cannot see how a £1.50 supplement is necessary for mussels. The halloumi is always an amazing dish though is noticeably smaller than the previous 2 times I've ordered it. The sea bass was also perfectly cooked and full of flavour, though appears a rather small dish. The only let downs in terms of flavour with the food was the chicken and haggis main and the scallop starter from the a la carte. They were under seasoned and just not very exciting, especially the mashed potato. Nevertheless, I do love most of the flavours and although I think the deal is overpriced, the quality is good and I will go back.
