Tasty food but expensive

The food here is lovely and you can't complain about the service. It just does seem expensive for what is it. Basic starters are around 7-8 quid. Mains around 20. These are fine dining prices. If you consider that Oliver's (one of the best restaurants in Cornwall) is cheaper than here and only up... read more

Such a good idea to eat here, was very impressed with.. Everything basically. Was greeted by a lovely young girl who got us a table. It was very early evening (think they'd only just opened) so we got to choose a table. Excellent wine list, took ages to decide what red to go for, had a Cabernet Sauvignon which I... More

Walking around the town on a cold & wet Tuesday we decided to try Cribbs - we've often passed & never ventured in! It was lovely to see it open when so many other eateries were closed (gyllyngvase !) Having a Caribbean boy with us should have got us a discount a there were 6 eaters when we arrived and... More

Staff could not do enough for us. Spicy great food. Pepper steak was great. Spicy jerk chicken too spicy for teenagers but milk helped! Thanks for a great meal!

Went here for evening dinner and had some pretty amazing food. Decent real ales in bottles too. Staff were very attentive and the food was reasonably priced given the quality.

I know other people like this restaurant but my experience last night was very very mediocre. Starter menu was limited and I finally opted for the bucket of treats which were deep fried bits of stuff (a bit like the equivalent in a beefeater). I had monkfish for my main and my partner had the lamb curry. The former wasn't... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing , it exceeded all expectations. Service was swift and the food was beyond words, between us we had the calamari , duck spring rolls , lamb curry and monkfish. Everything especially the fish was cooked and flavoured to perfection. I would recommend this to anyone. A little pricey but totally worth it!

Went here on saturday evening with friends. It was busy and buzzing, great atmosphere, but not too noisy. Nice and warm and cosy from the cold evening outside. Starters ordered were; Selection bucket - generous, tasty coconut prawn and calamari - lovely taste, would have liked another prawn! sticky ribs - massive portion duck roll - beautifully presented and tasty...
