A relaxed yet elegant atmosphere with indoor seating and floor-to-ceiling windows complements the alfresco Terrace Room with its sunsets that turn into twinkling stars. An innovative, bold menu ranges from vanilla brandy poached Maine lobster to Cabernet roasted short rib, accompanied by favourites from the wine cellar.
