Another wonderful meal

Once again we came to 71 expecting the best and that's what we got. Excellent service, meals and atmosphere. You should go and see what we're talking about.

This is a super restaurant run by John & his wife with good waitress staff. The surf & turf was excellent. The menu is not large but everything is fresh cooked. The fact we visited twice during our 6 day holiday is best recommendation

Just excellent. The proprietors couldn't do enough, and they manage to produce wonderful food. A fairly small restaurant that manages to get everything right.

We were a party of 6 girlfriends staying in the local area for a couple of days. We booked Seventy One after looking on the internet. We were warmly greeted by quietly attentive staff (always the best combination in my opinion!). Staff were knowledgeable about the menu and when we mentioned one of our party was allergic to nuts they... More

We had a meal here a couple of weeks ago. It was very good service (friendly but efficient) One lady managed to serve all the tables coolly and calmly. The menu was interesting and the results were delicious. The decor was a bit over the top on pink but if you like that kind of thing it was perfect! I... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a few local people and it didn't let us down. They let me put balloons etc up in the afternoon. Excellent meal and service.
