What a relief!

Having not been here for a while, himself and I returned with some trepidation. I had recently heard stories of painfully slow service, cold food and poor service. Whether these happened on a bad night or whether we hit on a really good night , I can't say. We do Valentines early as Himself has... read more

The ambience and food are 100% but unfortunately we had to wait lengthy periods to order and in between each course, which is all okay if you have the whole evening to your leisure but not so if your paying a babysitter per hour :(

My husband and I went there for his birthday. The decor is nice. The staff were friendly. There were many delicious specials on offer as well as a large menu. We split an appetizer... delicious homemade bread with salami. I ordered fettuccini with seafood and my husband ordered monkfish. My sauce (spicy tomato with peppers) was amazing! The kind of...

Waited 20 mins for starter's, 30 for mains , 20 for deserts on a dead quiet Saturday. Starters were decent if overpriced. The big letdown was the pizza. Ordered six toppings and 2 were wrong. Base was the soggiest raw piece of dough I've ever encountered. Literally flopped over when you picked a slice up. I mean even the kebab... More

I have been here a couple of times & was always seated upstairs, which in my view lacks atmosphere On my last visit myself & my friend were seated downstairs & what a difference it made. It had warmth & atmosphere. Totally different. The food as always was lovely. The staff were efficient & helpful.

We had booked this restaurant for a family reunion for 30 of us. We arrived at 8:00 it took an hour for starters to arrive even though they were selected by them. 5 of us didn't get soup as they ran out!!! At 10;00 we still hadn't received our main course. One of the party had to leave with a... More

I went there on a bank holiday Monday for dinner. It was a great overall experience, starting from the place itself, looks really classy. The food was exceptionally tasteful, well served: perfect!The service was fast and really professional. The chef is really nice and friendly. I definitely advice you to go there, you'll be certainly satisfied!
