...said my partner as she tucked into her starter, but more on that in a minute, Without question, this is one of the best meals we've ever had in a restaurant - actually, this is one of the best overall dining experiences we have ever had full stop! The food was second to none, putting to shame some Michelin Star... More

The food was excellent and the service outstanding. We ate in the evening and they squeezed us in the next lunchtime (even though it was a busy match day). Selim the manager makes this restaurant a top choice.

I'm not sure that I could say it was one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant but it was certainly very good. The Head Waiter was outstanding, the menu was excellent, the food was very good, the wine was sublime and the ambiance was fine. Portion sizes depended on your choice from the menu but you didn't...

My husband & I were very fortunate to have dinner at this restaurant. From the moment we were seated we felt that this was a great choice. We started with Prosecco and moved on to appetizers and mains. Everything was absolutely delicious - my husband said it was the best meal that he had in ages! However, what really sets... More

Four of us went for a 3 course meal one evening and we really enjoyed it. Firstly the service was welcoming, attentive and prompt, but we were most impressed with the food! On arrival we were greeted with a bottle of water, fresh bread and olives on the table which I really liked. I had the platter for starters. The... More

Popped in last night pre-theatre. Tight menu, as one would expect from a restaurant from this size and some interesting specials available as starters/mains not listed. Re-assuring that it's all fresh and made to order, not frozen, part prepped/cooked. Bread was excellent as were the olives. I a bit of a hurry so went for main and dessert. I had... More

Popped in for lunch, wonderful service and welcome. Great value set lunch menu not a huge choice but the quality of all the dishes excellent! The Chilli black pudding starter and Italian sausage and ham stew perfect for a cold and wet welsh autumn day. Would definitely return.
