As you'd expect on a Saturday evening, Sottovento was quite busy. I reserved online a week before when I arranged for the added extras of an 80th balloon and a birthday cake. Our party of 11 was very well catered for... 2 children, aged 9 and 4, ate from the kids menu, which kept them happy! Plus staff were able... More

We went to Sottovento as a family for our grandsons 7th Birthday. Most of the party choose from the set menu which at either £11.95 or £13.95 (more choices) for 3 courses which I think is great value. The food was delicious and served to us all at the same time which can sometimes be a problem with large parties.... More

we have started going regularly to this restaurant as the food every time is delicious, they have great midweek offers and with 2 small children it's a very family friendly and a welcoming place with a great choice of meals for kids! I can't fault it, the staff have always looked after us well and nothing is to much trouble!... More

visited here twice however on both occasions I was left waiting for my main course while the rest of the party I was with were served and on one occasion the wrong main course was brought. On the plus side the waiter could not do enough in writing this issue and was very apologetic.

Restaurant looks great inside and has a really good atmosphere, service was good with all the staff friendly and polite. However the food lacked flavour and tasted microwaved. For the same price there are so many better options. Shame as could be a real gem. Sorry but won't be coming back.
