Great food every time. Service is good and it's always reasonable. Menu is great and all the vegetarian dishes are well presented and full of flavour. We eat here every time we visit. My husband has always enjoyed the meat dishes too.

Excellent choice of dishes and very tasty food, served by friendly staff. This place has a nice atmosphere and won't break your budget, which is reflected in the decor, so don't expect to be eating in posh surroundings.

What a great eating experience on a busy night! One of the few restaurants in the area that had a standard menu as opposed to one asking silly prices for the night. The service was excellent and the food quality superb. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we were made to feel very welcome. Well worth a visit... More

We visited in New Year's Eve. The menu was varied, good value and well executed. Staff are friendly, service good and would certainly visited again. We had a tapas starter followed by mussels / Parma ham wrapped chicken. Mmmm!

So glad we booked as it was really busy, even turning people away. Lovely quirky place with friendly welcoming staff. The food was fabulous, super tasty and well presented. The quality and freshness of the food was outstanding.

There is a huge amount of choice here and the menu really does cater for all medditerran style food. Incredibly reasonably priced for what you get and there... More

My wife and I visited here for our anniversary meal. Service was top-notch and the food was outstanding, with excellent choice on the menu and lots on the specials board. Bruschetta to start was very good, and mains of sea bass and lamb shank were spot on. There was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and was an ideal place... More
