The staff were friendly, polite yet fun, and recommended a scallop and king prawn dish from the specials board. It was superb! A thoroughly enjoyable evening, if you're ever on Poole Quay it is well worth a visit.

Had a meal with family and was really looking forward to having a nice time in a lovely restaurant ..Unfortunately did not happen ,as food was truly awful .My partner had the most tasteless pizza ever made ..And any Italian restaurant should in my mind be the best place to eat a traditional food of Italy ..Best to avoid
