We had a brunch and returned on a different day for a lunch at this restaurant. The setting is fantastic, right beside the river and such a lovely view. The food on both occasions was outstanding. The presentation was grand and the flavours lived up to what your eyes where telling you! This coupled with the experience of a market... More

MMK has one of those menus that are so good that it becomes a really difficult decision to decide what to have. Hubby and I went for Valentines dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Hubby had the mussel entrée special and I can honestly say it was the best tasting mussel dish I have ever tried. And there... More

We enjoyed a beautiful meal here recently. The waitress was very attentive, the food beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The only thing which let this establishment down was the girl behind the bar who took the money for the meal, she needed some advice on Customer Relations (a smile, please and thank you would have been appreciated).

We started lunch outside but then heavy rain came and we retreated inside with many others, this did not cause any problems with the staff who were only too ready to assist with all the moves to the inside, all food correct and really very tasty. Good portions too.

Whether veggie or not, there is no end of the very tasty selections to tempt your palette. The outdoor seating along the river & all the vegetation to enjoy just makes for a very pleasant time with family & friends.

Very pleasant & helpful staff. Some of our food was great, others was not too good. Fish & chips great! Eye filet with pate,spinach, mushroom, and potatoes was very uneven. Meat fine, the rest did not taste good. Potatoes was really terrible. Dessert lovely. And ducks walking around inside being fed by some customers... A no, no, no! It's not... More

Order was taken quickly which was an excellent start The garlic bread in a pot was luke warm and the bread was at least a day or two old, garlic butter was not melted Main course:... More
