The food was exceptional, staff were friendly with efficient service. Shame that 3 drunks were seated next to us, very embarrassing for us and other customers. However this would not put me off dining in this fabulous restaurant again.

My other half and I ate here while on holiday in the nearby Vincci Estrella Del Mar hotel. We arrived at about 8 without a reservation and had to wait until 9 for a table. This was fine as we sipped some drinks at a table outside. It was definitely worth the wait, the food, staff and atmosphere were fantastic!... More

We used to be regular customers of the Playwright. The food is excellent and very well presented. But the very loud music means you cannot talk, you have to shout and risk going hoarse. Very unpleasant. The service this year was chaotic and unacceptable the two times we went recently. Unfortunately, this is another restaurant struck off our list of... More

We went as a group of 6 and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The food was of a high standard and a very classy menu. Mr Maph provided the perfect music for the setting and just made it.

I had an early dinner there on a Friday night as there is entertainment around 9ish. The food choices are lovely and my cousin and I both had the chicken liver pate to start followed by the sole with chinese veg. The pate was home made and the best that I have ever tasted. The presentation was top notch and... More

We had an early dinner here and were welcomed by friendly staff. We ordered 3 angus steaks and all wanted them cooked differently. They all came out perfectly! Don't forget to order desert here, they are all super delicious, especially the bannoffee pie. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning.

Have been before and the food is allways glorious. Todays visit not so good. Food outstanding as per but it was so hot inside. Like a sauna. Staff would not let us open the door to get air in. Said that aircon was on and by having door open the air con was escaping. Air con may well have been... More

We went here 4 times on holiday and can honestly say - faultless. From the lovely service we received to the outstanding meals both in taste and presentation. The girls serving really made of my daughter so very family friendly too. We did book the times we were going later as restaurant does get busy. The foie gras starter (one... More
