The name D'Venue Bar & Restaurant is a misnomer. We went in there just for drinks and we were turned down even though the place was dead empty! The reason was that we had to order food and not just drinks only. We were disappointed and I am nit going to set foot in that place ever again.

From the haughty and disinterested patron to the passive aggressive waitress, we were made to feel wholly unwelcome, I'd go as far to say an inconvenience. When ordering the waitress couldn't get away quick enough, even walking away mid-order at one point, and while the food didn't take long to arrive, it was thrown down and over cooked. The miserable... More

In a 10 night stay we ate here 4 times. Preferring to sit upstairs which has an open air balcony overlooking the square. The food was fantastic, the steaks being the best I've ever eaten. Even with 8 of us the staff were very attentive and made sure we enjoyed our evenings. Overall clean/friendly, and excellent quality food cooked to... More

We were recommended to try the pasta here and were not disappointed. We had the soup of the day, a huge portion of lentil soup which was very tasty. Followed by pasta of the day which was squid ink ravioli stuffed with calamari with a tomato and caper sauce and the sun dried tomato macaroni both of which were excellent.... More

The seating out front by the road is probably the best restaurant seats you can have. You can really soak up the atmosphere of the place. The staff are very friendly & accommodating. Most important of all the food is superb & excellent value for money. Over the week we ate there 4 times & were never disappointed.

Have just read a review underneath my previous one about seating. Was astonished! We thought the seats by the road were the best, and were disappointed if they were taken when we arrived - those tables gave us a view of the lovely church and the square, in which events had been held throughout the week - and a view...

We dined here several times and thoroughly enjoyed the food and friendly service. Fish soup is recommended and veal, lamb and steak melt in the mouth. Husband says lamb shank is best he's ever had. Well worth a visit.

We booked a table for four on the terrace. When we arrived, despite the fact that it was nearly empty, we've been given the worst table, close to the road. When we asked for another place, they refused, saying that they were all the same. We understood later, the local were given the best places. I did not appreciate. And... More
