Having read some previous reviews, I am happy to report that four of us visited this restaurant this evening and were pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was excellent, and the staff very attentive and helpful. Early in the evening, there was the possibility of the meal going pear shaped in that the Merlot offered to one of our... More

We went for a meal before visiting the mayflower theatre. The food was very nice and quite reasonably priced (one main course and drinks cost just under £30). The waitresses were really nice but we did struggle to get their attention a few times and it wasn't particularly busy. The decor inside was kind of like a b&b and didn't... More

Went for a pre-meal before going to see the Lion King at Mayflower. Service was slow to say the least. Lots around bit nobody actually doing anything. The food was very ordinary & disappointing. Long wait between courses and we didn't have time to have desert. We were overcharged along with everybody who was eating upstairs. By the time we... More

Very nice restaurant, the service was good, and the food was lovely. Waitresses were pleasant , and were busy. We pre ordered our food so we had very little waiting time for our meals. Very nice

In Southampton one night pre-cruise. I found that several of the restaurants that I might want to try were closed on Sunday. About 6pm we set out on a walking search from our B&B located on the Polygon. Quickly ran across this restaurant and the menu looked interesting. It's a bit quirky as we were told that if we sat...

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant and was extremely disappointing. We started with olives and garlic bread which was fine, but went rapidly downhill after that. My chicken and pancetta salad was absolutely swimming in balsamic vinegar, which was the only thing I could taste. My sister in law ordered lasagne which should be safe in an Italian... More

We have eaten here many times in the past when going to a matinee at the Mayflower. However today was not a good experience. Both my sister in law and my main course was not good, in fact I only ate a few mouthfuls of my lasagne. I couldn't find the meat, all it consisted of was tomatoes which tainted... More
