Loved this place. Went on a Sunday night with two children aged 16 and 12. Looks great (much better than it did as Sponge Bar) - very warm welcome and good service. Maitre'd was very helpful and knowledgeable. Food was excellent too. Husband had the Sunday Roast which was lamb shanks and heaps of roast vegetables; I had vegetarian ravioli and boys had hamburger and meat balls. All excellent. Looking forward to next visit.
