I have dinned at a The Playwright a few times now and have never disappointed with the food. The presentation is spot on and every dish I've tried is as good as the last.The staff are all very professional and friendly. I am a local restauranteur myself and I honestly cannot fault this place. If you visit the costa del... More

We were so looking forward to dinner at the Playwright, as we have eaten there many times and enjoyed it thoroughly. Unfortunately it was not what we expected. My sister's steak was very undercooked (she is a professional chef herself) and I had the pasta, which was supposed to have truffle in it, but it tasted as if they had... More

We held our pre-wedding dinner in The Playwright on Saturday 1 August for about 20 guests. We were really impressed from start to finish. The manager, Amy, could not have been more accommodating. She personalised a pre-theatre menu for us and included some extra options that I requested. There was a great variety of choice and the food was served... More

Went for a 'romantic' meal after it was recommended as a place of decorum and ambience. On the evening we went however the restaurant was over run with children. The music was too loud for any semblance of ambience. However once we settled in and accepted that the children were not the fault of the establishment it was clear that... More

I had been told about this restaurants by numerous friends and have on many occasions said I would try it. It's not the most scenic of locations as it's just off the main carretere and down a slip road,however inside is very nice. Decor is quite stylish, simple not over the top. It had a little bit of a romantic... More

The Playwright was recommended by friends (who obviously know NOTHING about food)!!! There were three of us on the night and not one of us had a good meal. Two of us had meat, steaks of some nature. We literally couldn't cut it even with a steak knife. God knows where they source it from? It's also way over priced!... More

Playwright is a really fun place to go with entertainment every night (Johnny G being the best in my opinion). Food is fantastic and lots to choose from. Staff extremely good under the leadership of Amy and Jaime. Good choice of drinks. Check out the Early Bird menu up to 7.30pm or wait until later and dance the night away... More

You will not be disappointed, It pays to pre book a table to ensure you get in as this place does get pretty busy .....great food and drinks. Fantastic people, hospitality and live music.
