Weve had two visits to Tarantella and enjoyed both. The menu is varied and interesting and the food on both occasions has been without fault. The restaurant itself is a nice environment to be in and the service is fairly good, although we experienced the same issues mentioned previously with staff standing about chatting. Staff were busy fussing over a... More

My wife picked sea bass in a coconut and capers sauce with pok choi, my choice was pork medallions topped with tomato and goat's cheese. Spices were added to the... More

We dined here for a night out, the location of the restaurant was easy to find and accessible with a paying car park around the corner. The food we ordered was divine, it was cooked very hot and was served very quickly. The menu had a wide range of selection of different types of foods, drinks and desserts. The dessert... More

Fantastic food and relaxing atmosphere, we felt well looked after and we were very happy with everything. It was apparent that large groups are catered for as well as intimate couples or smaller groups with ease. Will definitely go again, but I feel that I need an excuse such as a birthday!

I really wanted to like this place. For many of our group of 7 the food was very good but for my wife and I it was a big disappointment. Our pizza they said could do as vegan came with anchovies. The waitress said they would remove the pizza charges from the bill - they didn't. And the waitress seemed... More
