Gets worse every time we go.......

Ok, so I've been here 4 times now and as the title says, my experiences are becoming more negative each time. Originally it was sublime, great atmosphere and good food, only downside was a very loud owner/manager who spoke at a 1000 decibels at all times. However, since she has gone, food has got... read more

Visited Fatsos whilst on a trip to Yarmouth. We were accommodated despite not having a booking. The burgers here are so tasty and the wedges are my favourite. Not sure if my plate was missing some salad as it looked a little empty but nevertheless I enjoyed it very much. Good drinks menu and cocktails. Highly recommended. Received a 4*... More

Had the combo fajitas, my husband had the same, my mum and dad had chicken. Not the cheapest place but believe me you get what you pay for. Absolutely huge portions and we ate the lot. Steaming hot and good branded drinks. I have no complaints whatsoever. Not sure if it's true but was told it was shutting in a... More

The lady that served us when we got there was very friendly and accommodating, however, she disappeared at one stage and we were then served by a young waiter, who was very rude. He brought out 3/4 meals and then when we asked where the other meal was, he completely ignored us and walked off. In the end, we had... More

This was my first visit to Fatso's and it will be my last, we were disappointed. It started well, we were seated quickly by a friendly waitress. She took our drinks orders and when she came back took our food orders no problems. Our starters arrived which were very nice. It was after that things went down hill. The waiter... More

We visited Fatso' s this evening for a family meal to celebrate my son being accepted into university. We've visited so many times before and it is often hit and miss as far as the service is concerned but the food usually makes up for it. Today sadly both failed, the waiter was polite but seemed completely over his head... More

I visited this restaurant with my family this week with high hopes as the menu looks lovely. Unfortunately it was a disappointing experience. Three of our party, including myself, chose steak. They were ALL tough, chewy (a comparison was made having to eat like a washing machine) with a LOT of gristle. A complaint was made and the waitress assured... More

I have been visiting fatsos for years, so decided to go on my birthday with some friends. 3 of us ordered burgers and 1 other ordered a chicken dish. We got our burgers after a long wait, for them to be cold!! All 3 of ours were very mildly warm. I told our waitress who didn't seem to sympathetic and... More
