Steak on A Stone!!!

Visited in May and back in August - first place we came back to! The fillet on a hot stone is something any red meat eater has to try! Amazing! Evidently the Chicken Kiev is to die for too (according to the wife!). Friendly staff and a real nice atmosphere.

After reading the reviews was really looking forward to eating here. When we walked in we noticed the help yourself salad bar as we were escorted to our seats. Some of the tables for 2 are so close together it actually looked uncomfortable. As for the food, we had breaded mushrooms, vegetarian fajitas and a sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce.... More

Some friends recommended this restaurant to us and we weren't disappointed. Lovely staff, delicious " steak on the stone", wonderful homemade salads on the salad bar. Very happy evening. Relaxed and simple decor.

However, it's not a patch on L'osteria across the road. It looks modern and always busy but the staff were inexperienced bar... More
