We were a bit wary about going here because of some of the reviews. Pleasantly surprised, great food, reasonably priced, live music. Staff very busy but always attentive. Good to see the locals dining here.

One older male member of staff even got eye contact but made no effort to help us as we all stood there. After a few minutes we gave up and left what appeared to be... More

We had been to Tavertino's on previous holidays and liked it. We went last night and stood there waiting for someone to greet us. The staff ignored us, the whole atmosphere was very subdued and the customers were all sitting with empty plates looking fed up. In the end we gave up and left. Went next door to Nelsons and...

Haven't actually dined in here as we walked in were told nor to sit outside. The waitor was very surly and disinterested. Took ages for menus to arrive decided enough was enough so left. So glad we did went to s. Martino and had a fab meal.

Went here as the hotel food was so poor, liked it so much went back two nights running. Great service, great prices and the food was brilliant. The locals eat and socialise here so always a good sign. Fillet steat was delicious and had prawns just so I could try something diff. Evereything all good, you wont be disappointed

We ate there once. It was early and not very full. However the food was fine but not as good as it was four years ago. However they take American Express which is to be complimented. They have a huge menu and is certainly worth a visit

Lively inside/ outside dining area. Big display of fresh seafood to choose from, including tuna, salmon, bream, prawn. Good steaks. Reasonably priced wine.
