Tried to book a table here in August - phone calls and e-mails went unanswered, so we walked up to the restaurant and found a note on the door saying it was closed for the whole month for staff holidays. Went past the restaurant today and there's a new note on the door saying it's closed until further notice. Does anyone know what's going on? Apologies if I've missed a discussion about this already.

I spotted that a couple of weeks ago..Looked Like the Marie Celeste when I peered in.Also looks like "Best Italian" on Park Street has gone.

No idea, its a real shame, GREAT food and friendly staff/owner.
Illness, an accident?

Sadly it will not re-open, at least not in the current form. It didn't quite work, apparently generating insufficient custom, despite the location .... perhaps a victim of the recession?

lovely food but too expensive.

Yes, indeed, I had visited and it was outstanding but, I recall talking to the waiter at the time, who expressed, it could be busier so indeed, feel this is another business hit by the economic climate.

It's going to be a Vietnamese restaurant:

More did have nice food, but it was definitely too expensive - once on the chalkboard outside I'm sure I saw 'peanut butter on toast' for some ridiculous price..

sorry to see it go but good luck to the new people
