Went here on a Thursday evening after work for a bit of a treat. There was a large table of rowdy women, presumably on their office Christmas party, but obviously not the restaurants fault and not a major issue. We hadn't booked but they managed to seat us. We received no warm welcome, just indifferently guided to a table. The... More

Lovely 3 course meal! Really polite members of staff and watered to our every need. Although some of my friends pudding was still slightly frozen mine was delicious!! (Staff dealt with this matter) and they never asked how we wanted our steak cooking, but it was cooked exactly how I like it which was great!! Definitely going to go back... More

We tried unsuccessfully to get a table at Rum Rooms and then Relish and then came across this one and decided to try it. It did not look anything special from the outside but... More

On our first visit to Doncaster we strolled along Netherhall Road looking at the great choice of restaurants. We chose Sambuca & the 'Happy Hour' menu - good food, great service and very good value for money. We will return!

Dined here with friends after ladies day. Didn't book till that day but not a problem. Sat upstairs but rather rude and noisy group made atmosphere poor - swearing etc . This was dealt with by the waiter and owner well. Couldn't do enough - so as next night was my birthday we booked again. Brought the kids this time... More

Didn't book in advance. Manager took very good care of us . Service was excellent as was the food. House white wine is lovely. Had really enjoyable time. Used purple voucher to get one meal free & got it back to use again so even better.

Was given bread olives and goats cheese after ordering our food, didn't have to wait long for starters or the main meal, both plates cleaned with my... More

Dined here as a group of around 9. We were sharing the downstairs of the restaurant with a large 80th birthday party and it was very crowded. Our table was booked at 8pm and we didn't get our mains until 10! I don't think the rest of our party minded as they were enjoying the wine (which I hear was... More
