good value for Sunday lunch

I visited with a friend for Sunday lunch, as I sat in the car park I noticed most of the staff came out to smoke which was a little off putting we chose from the set menu, the portions are smallish but adequate for the price I assumed the pork would be like Italian porchetta but it was simply... read more

My husband and I have been going to this wonderful restaurant for years... And every time we go it reinforces our initial impression... This is a special place! Don't let the modest exterior fool you... the atmosphere and the food are second to none. We took some friends with us last Saturday for dinner and they are as impressed as... More

Lovely restaurant. Very tall waiter was excellent. Had a great choice and the food was excellent. They also seem to do a lot of fish. I enjoyed the pasta. On a Monday night it was not busy. Would go back again

Was looking forward to more delicious food but again felt very rushed service maybe because we had two young children) wanted to hurry us on, maybe to free up the table being a Saturday eve. Good wasn't as nice as last time but certainly decent. Just felt rushed.

Excellent food. We arrived without having booked a table. Staff very kindly provided table. Delicious meal. Kids and parents super happy. My little one said "they have the nicest smelling toilets". Trip advisor seems to suggest this place is expensive - I don't agree - dishes priced very reasonable. Well worth a repeat visit.

We were a party of 12 adults celebrating my wife's birthday and, being a Saturday, the restaurant was very busy. However, everything was excellent with warm welcome, brilliant food, and cheery, friendly and efficient service. What more could you ask for?

We had our yearly visit to Carlos' for my Dad's birthday in December. It was a Friday and office party season was in full flow so the restaurant was rammed. However, we were greeted by the head waiter as warmly as ever. Especially given how busy the place was the food and service was superb. It is real hearty traditional... More
