Mmm... Tasty!

Went there for lunch, was a good set menu. It's a nice setting and atmosphere, not too formal but relaxed which I like, the place wasn't full but about half full. Service was good. Food was good, big size starters. Me and friend had a steak, which was delicious, very nice quality meat. Good... read more

Great lunch and dinner menus. Their fajitas are to die for, and the burger is really worth trying. Good for kids as well. Cool Mexican inspired interior.

We went here as a family of 12 and found the food to be very tasty and the staff to be very pleasant. The portions are very big, both the adults and children, but each person enjoyed their food. We had steaks, pork chops, enchiladas, gnocchi, chilli basket and was well received. The children had huge breaded chicken portions and... More

Another must-do on my list when I come to St Andrews. In the evenings it can get a little busy but the early evening set menu is very reasonably priced and if come early enough it's not even that busy. I was a little disappoint to see the stuffed jalepenos weren't on the menu this time around, they were a... More

Went here for lunch one Saturday with a friend. There was nothing that would make me rush back. I ordered a sharing size nachos with beef chilli as a main course. When the food eventually arrived, the tortilla chips were soggy like a plate of mush, and there was only a scraping of beef chilli on top. Service wasn't very... More

The grill house has totally gone down hill recently. Me and family used to visit all the time but I find the customer service at this restaurant is just getting worst and worst x

So sad to be writing this .... My family and I have been regulars at the 'house' restaurants for years and in particular The Grill House (previously La Posada). I had been told by others that since the G1 takeover they had really gone downhill in terms of food and service, but my daughter and I decided to try it... More

Visited during the Open. No intention to return. Average. Average. Its part of a chain now and suffering for it. Average is the best I can say. Set menu , limited choice. Meals? Average and poor value for money. Long waits. Even the ice cream was awful. Service staff get a 10 for trying to recover but I won't return.... More

We were a large party on a Saturday night and it turned out to be a great night. Good food (not excellent, hence the 4 not 5); nice selection; excellent value for money; helpful, friendly staff who really went the extra mile for us; stark room without any soft furnishing but still a really nice vibe. Everyone enjoyed themselves and... More
