We arrived at 7.50pm. Our order was not taken until half an hour later and our food did not arrive until 9.15pm. Another few minutes and I would have left. Although my ribs were OK, the Jambalaya which 3 of our party had was paltry and the fish dish was described by the lady who had it as unpleasant. The... More

Beautiful food, well cooked and presented. Extremely good value and excellent service. Chef will often visit from the kitchen to ensure the meal is being enjoyed and answer any questions. Parking not easy. Recommendation? Yep...everything on the menu!

This is a good place to relax and enjoy good food although small it's an intimate restaurant. It's cosy in the winter with an open log fire. The staff are friendly n the chef is always around to chat and advise if you can't decide on what to eat. All food cooked to order

We had dinner at Embe last night, and found the atmosphere and general experience excellent. The building is a former pub, but inside the feel is much like my partner has experienced in the Caribbean. The décor and colours enhance the experience. The background music also added to the feel. So full marks for atmosphere. The service was friendly, and... More

On entry, we were informed that some building works were being carried out as the management were opening up the floor space a bit more. However, this did not distract from the overall experience. the staff are attentive and although there was a... More
