Every time I have ate here I've never been disappointed, Andy knows his food and knows good food! Nice atmosphere, quick service and flavours in the food are exquisite! Price is what you pay for, they definitely don't skimp on portions, had the steak this time and the time before the lamb kelftico, both beautiful dishes!! Only downside was a... More

Went here this evening (Sunday) around 845 and were still welcomed even though it was 45 mins before last orders. When you originally look at the menu, the prices seem higher than some restaurants you could choose, however once the food is brought to your table you quickly forget this - it's worth every penny.. The mussels for starters were... More

What a great meal. My partner and I both had steaks which were tender and tasty...and the sides were good too. The starters...spicy beef and camembert wraps were great and desserts yummy too...and lo washed down with a great Rioja. Good service too. And when I left my bag behind it was safely left behind the bar for me to... More

Nice to find somewhere this good that cooks on a Monday evening as we are in hospitality ourselves and with only Mondays off its a... More

Really excellent food (although almost too much..doggy bag required) served by very pleasant staff in a very nice and authentic feeling environment. Good value for money and would highly recommend!

Eleven of us visited this restaurant for my husbands birthday, you do need to book. The staff were very welcoming and seated us very quickly, they handed us the menus and took our drinks order. The menu had so many lovely things to choose from, we ate from the party menu which also has a great choice. This restaurant is... More

First of all, book a table as the restaurant is always very busy. There is a reason why, though... the food is really good and the portions are enormous! If you fancy a steak, think twice before you order a starter (starters coma as big portions as well). It is a really good place for a birthday dinner as the... More

Went here for my birthday dinner, wasn't disappointed. Food a bit pricey but worth the huge portion. The staff especially are helpful and very attentive. We were served by Natalie, a very sweet and professional waitress. Recommended.
