Fabulous steaks!

We've eaten at this restaurant several times. Each time we've ordered steak and each time they have been excellent.

Visited for lunch for my husbands birthday. Upon arrival there was some confusion over our booking and things got very muddled. The young waitress was not sure what she was doing and who needed serving first but was equally very pleasant and polite. We had Tapas and it was very enjoyable and the wine great too! This is my second... More

Lunch time visit for us. We were beginning to despair of finding a good place to eat in Plymouth city centre when we happened upon this gem! Tapas especially good - wife was in food heaven. Service was flawless (a term I rarely use). Will certainly return for one of their tapas evenings.

We went for my birthday meal and I've always praised this place. I must admit the food was lovely although it took a while to come out. But what ruined the night for me was the service. The waitress spoke to us like we were idiots and I found her rude! When I asked her to re-do the brandy coffees... More

I'm always looking for somewhere new to eat. Heard some good reviews about this place and lovely fresh crab salad so decided to give it a try. The restaurant was pleasant bit cluttered with seating arrangement and not very private.. too close together. However the service was good and I very much enjoyed my lunch. Worth a try for lunch...

seven of us had booked for a pre theater meal before going to a show. When we got there and asked about the pre-theater menu we were informed it was just the usual menu, despite there being a pre-theater menu on their website. two other tables also asked for this menu and were told the same thing. The food was... More
