We arrived with two friends evening in Blackpool and did not wanted to stop at a fisch and chip stop on the sea. More or less by random we went to AJ and it turned out to be a perfect dinner. Service (AJ) has been so friendly that you feel she knows you for along time. I ate a steak... More

AJ is amazing. Food so good and Mike is really well thought out about choice of ingredients as well as cooking it the right way. And AJ herself is a real sweet heart! So hospitable - gotta love her! Thanks for a great meal!

They should not have taken our booking as they had a party in and could not cope. So noisy we could barely hear ourselves think let alone speak. Well over an hour with no food served, not even any olives, crackers, nuts or anything else to nibble, eventually we gave up. To their credit we did end up with 2... More

I was a one of the diners that had a table booked for 8:30 on the 4th Sept. My friend Chris had rang and spoke to the chef/owner on Wednesday, who took our booking on the understanding that they had a large party booked and if we could come at half past eight instead of eight, giving them time to...

I thought I was at a loss of what to say about this establishment, we booked a table by telephone and spoke to the owner and chef, we asked for a eight o'clock booking but was told they had a large party booking at that time, so eight thirty was agreed to give them time to sort the large group,...

Do not mistake this place for just a cafe as they have a good a la carte menu and I had a well cooked meal of chicken livers and steak au poive. Staff very attentive. I did feel that the wine let down this bistro as over-priced for the type on offer. I have tasted much better Riojas for a... More
