Service a bit slow and food cold

Visited here with a group from work. Found it to be very average, food was generally ok, but I ordered the paella which wasn't what I would call hot! Everyone else pretty much had fajitas which did seem to go down well. We also found the service really slow, two members of our party waited 30mins... read more

Waited about 30 minutes for a glass of coke. Food was horrible, my burger just fell apart the second I picked it up. Doubtful I'll go back.

Lovely looking place in Festival leisure park in Basildon but when you pay £16.95 for sizzling mango cod, as on of the most expensive options on the menu,you expect more than 2 tiny bits of fish without any evidence of anything to classify it as mango. It was my birthday and after I finished the sizzling plate, that took me... More

Had to queue up to get in but was worth it. Best food in the restaurant area and have been back many times. Nachos for a starter is a must!

I love this place, from the atmosphere to the food. I'm a picky eater and I'm spoilt for choice here. It's not the cheapest of restaurants but worth every penny. Staff are friendly with great service. Can't wait to go back!

Me & my friend went to see Magic Mike XXL on Saturday and afterwards we had some cocktails! The desert cocktails are so good, we tried 4 different ones and one 'classic' cocktail from the menu - there are loads to choose from. My favourite was the strawberry one with the popping candy on the top. The lady behind the... More
