Lovely place and great food. It is always hopping which is a good sign. Last time we ate at a high table in the bar and had mojitos ... Which always go down a treat. Meat was excellent and we will be back this evening!

Yes we enjoyed our first to Playwright, Elvira but have reservations . We were seated next to the only entrance door on a cold winters evening, which was continually left open by other diners arriving , going out for a smoke and departing. This spoilt our evening as we had to leave our table to shut the door. Maybe the... More

An inspired chef producing a wide range of dishes at amazingly low prices. Always busy, you need to book. A 3 course menu for 25 euros before 7.30 pm every day.

Eaten here 3 times on visits to see friends in Spain. The food is excellent and service to match. Quite often has live music in bar and the bar can be lively. However the restaurant is very traditional and relaxing. Recommend the steak and a good bottle of Red. The wine list is reasonable and not over the top. We... More

We were extremely disappointed with the poor service on our visit here in October, but decided to try again and went back for another Sunday lunch yesterday. Manager Jamie more than made amends and this time we were looked after really well. The food was once again excellent, and the staff coped admirably although the restaurant was very full. The...

I have been to this restaurant twice in the past two weeks and both times the service and food has been excellent. They have a singer who sings a variety of music and is very entertaining. The menu is varied and there is something for everybody.

Invited by my brother to join him and three others from Birmingham UK for my first experience at playwrights. Fantastic warm welcome, great service by staff who obviously enjoyed working there, large choice of good wine and spirits served in the correct type of glass, sat down at our table to look at the menu... Well what a great choice... More

We were so impressed by our delicious meal and the elegant, but comfortable atmosphere. All went downhill when we waited 25 minutes for a dessert menu and then another 20 minutes for the actual dessert. There were too few employees to handle the very full restaurant and their attention was scattered. So very disappointing when the meal was so good!
