Lovely food, friendly staff

We ate here before going to theatre on Saturday evening. We sat upstairs in the dining room. The menu has a good selection of dishes and are reasonably priced. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. we will definitely be returning.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It says on the outside that they are friendly and they lived up to their promise. Food was good too. Would recommend.

We had the dinner here, it's a quite nice restaurant, it's not the best one but the atmosphere and the people were ok. Good service, busy restaurant, really enjoyed the main (chargrilled fish with roasted potatoes), we've got whitebait and calamari as a starter (calamari really nice, whitebait awful, smelly, we couldn't eat them, nobody asked us if it was...

The staff are very charismatic and will do what they can to help. The food is actually very pleasant, the desserts especially, the waiter even managed to guess all of our desserts correctly which was pretty fun. They got the bill slightly wrong but it was quickly corrected.

We have eaten here many times over the years for pre-theatre dining, this was the first time we have been since it has changed to bar/bistro dining and I am sorry to say we won't be going back. We chose to eat upstairs in the bistro restaurant. The menu was very limited, We chose Cajun chicken pieces with salad and... More

We'd booked a table at this restaurant as we were going to a show at the Mayflower. The previous restaurant we'd visited down the road was not up to scratch. This was the complete opposite. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent food and a nice atmosphere. The food servings were ample (we had the swordfish). The service was quick - we were... More

Had a meal there before a show. Clearly the restaurant is geared towards people visiting the Mayflower opposite. It has a fairly basic menu, but the food was good and served quickly. Recommended!

Wondered where to eat and remembered the Italian at the top of Commercial Road - it had changed, now a Bistro with the bare essentials, wooden floor and chunky wooden tables, nice. Our host was a young chap who showed us to the table, mentioned something about a discount on the food menu and stated all orders are placed at... More

We visited for a pre theatre meal and although the restaurant is now upstairs as my wife has difficulty with meals we were very helpfully located by the staff at a table downstairs in the bar area. The food was really good and the staff very helpful and the meal contributed to a very pleasant evening.

Had a great night out with lovely food and great service. The desserts were all to die for. A big thank you to our waiter, I think his name was Hugh. He was really attentive, helpful, polite and funny to boot! The whole group had a great night and we would recommend your restaurant to others. Many thanks.
