This place used to be lovely- the food was gorgeous, the atmosphere always buzzing and prices reasonable. However, I'm not sure if its been taken over in the last few years, but I was seriously let down when my mum and I came here for lunch recently. I ordered a grilled chicken salad- wow. I could have bought a better... More

We don't know if this is a genuine review or not as we have never served cucumber with our salads, our prices are still the same as well as the management. Nothing has changed over the years, we have always grilled our chicken for the salads. A lot of people leave bad reviews on trip advisor about us and promise... More

We went here as a family to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Our order was taken by a surly looking waiter who gave the impression he didn't want to be there. Throughout the meal 4 of the waiters stood around next to our table arguing with each other. Serving customers seemed like an inconvenience. We all chose different options. Here's... More

We're not really sure how to respond to this review or the others that have given us bad reviews, are they real or fake? Are we as a restaurant that bad that we are still open for business, apparently our food is bad and so is the service. We still don't understand why then we are one of the busiest... More

When we initially walked in the italian waiter walked past and didn't even acknowledge us. After 5 min's he came back, showed us to a table, threw our menus down and walked away, came back 2 min's later and dumped a basket of bread and a dip on the table without a word and walked away again. Normally we have... More

I visited mid week for a lunch date with a friend. I had pasta marinara and she had lasagne. We were served by two very polite attentive waiters. The food was great. Not huge portions but enough for lunchtime. It was well presented , hot , and tasty. We finished with a coffee each. Had a lime and soda each... More
