Used the Goodramgate venue two or three times in the past, but will not be using again! The venue is small and a little bit too intimate for my liking! If you are close to the sort of diner who likes other people to hear their voice and their opinions, then this is the place to go, because you can... More

We booked here for our wedding anniversary and enjoyed the atmosphere and location to the centre of the city centre. The only dissapointment was the food lacked the WOW factor and authenticity, when we looked at Pintos at the deli counter they looked as if had been there a long time even thought we were in very early that night...

The food is of a good standard and tasty. Service was a little poor. Having to ask for a drink 3 times before it arrived. The place was overly hot too. I'd eat there again but would not rush! Looks like the roof has damaged the inside of the building. Scaffold all around it but don't let that put you... More

Four of us visited on Friday night. The restaurant was very busy so you must book in advance. Also helps if you book for the date you actually want to go unlike me who managed to book for the wrong week. Thankfully I realised beforehand and the restaurant changed my booking no problems. Service was excellent and we were greeted... More

We booked to eat here on a Saturday night and it was a good jib we had booked or we would not have got in. The food was absolutely delicious, particularly the sauce on the caramelised chorizo and potatoes. The wine was really good too. The service was just right - attentive but not fussy. All-in-all an excellent experience.

Hadn't booked a table but managed to find a table in the bar area. The food was out of this world! Would defiantly go back and our waitress was lovely.

For lunch we ordered the vegetarian tapas taster menu to share. The dishes were OK but nothing spectacular. However, there was more than enough for two people to eat. The cappuccino was too weak. The service was efficient and friendly. The piped music was very loud and screechy.
