I can't fault this place - make sure to ring ahead and reserve your table, this place is rightfully busy. On arrival we were greeted like old friends, with excellent recommendations and attention paid to us throughout the wonderful meal. The atmosphere is fantastic, beautiful artwork lines the walls of the wooden interior. The floor staff have a great humour,... More

I came to dine in this restaurant just before Christmas time, with my boyfriend and I say that I wasn't disappointed by the reviews: it is really good. We had calamari as starter, rabbit and I took smoked duck breast: so tasty, so good and I havent tried something so original before. Strange matching of food, like duck and fish... More

Other reviewers have already noted the warmth of the host, and the atmosphere lived up to those reviews as well. We had to book early on the day, in January and had the last two places in the restaurant. I had a Fritto di Mare for entree, a delicate treatment of prawns and other small bites to tempt me for...

I read the reviews of the restaurant before coming and we were not disappointed. Gino is a great host who makes sure all the guests are well looked after and attended to. Also the chef came out of the kitchen to make sure everything was alright. This is the best place to have seafood, seabass was excellent, very fresh, sweet,... More

Everything about this place is magic. The space, cosy and characterful and the food was special. Enticing presentation before you even got a mouthful added to the experience and both our choices for starters and mains were delicious. We can highly recommend the chilli spiked strips of beef with spaghetti and the wonderfully rustic fish soup for starters. You won't... More

I love this family run place where service is personal and food is cooked to perfection. We had the seabass and stake and we totally enjoyed our evening.

We ate as a couple, with a friend joining us. Unfortunately they were slightly delayed. The waitress was keen for us to order before he arrived and was a tiny bit put-out when we wouldn't. Overall the food was very good and the wine choice reasonable. We only had starters and mains, so cannot comment on the desserts. Service was... More

We read about L'Artist on TA and it was as described. The food was freshly cooked and the portion size was very generous. We shared a starter and had Octopus & Chicken main courses. Both were very tasty. The chef was very keen to see if the food met out requirements, which was a nice touch. Very friendly resturant and... More

From the moment you step into the restaurant you are made welcome by Gino. The food is exceptional with a good choice of wine to suit the meal. I had a seafood platter for 2 which has plenty in it. The chef, Steve, came out to check on the results of his very exclusive work!!! Be aware the place is... More
