I have been a regular visitor for a number of years, and enjoy Abbey garden tremendously. The food is very good, and the embiance is casual and inviting. My only complaints are that the space is too small, and while the music is relaxing, it doesn't always fit the style of the place. I have made some good friends there with the waitstaff, and they are always eager to please! Best time to vist is mid-afternoon during the week, when it's quieter.
