Been going here for years now. The food has always been at a very high standard however service is hit & miss. Have found on the last 2 visits a number of staff hang around the kitchen chatting when a lot of patrons are looking around for service. Make sure you always make bookings on the weekends.

A great little restaurant where we know we will get the same great quality every time. We love the locals nights. Not the place you would go to for a quiet night as it's more of a bustling hive of activity with the kitchen being open to the restaurant.

Have been here a few times and have enjoyed each meal I've ordered. Inside capabilities is small but there are tables outside - however if it was raining hard, I would query when booking.

What a great place to enjoy good quality food. The service was excellent and every waitress seems to be enjoying what they are doing. We had a great Seafood Pizza, Paela and Seafood Pasta. Will visit definitely again.

Went here based on others TripAdvisor comments and we weren't disappointed. Set back from the main road it is a lovely open inside/outside layout. The staff were friendly and attentive. The menu is Italian influenced with lots of pizzas and pastas. They all sound very nice. We had the Barcelona pizza and the pumpkin and corn risotto. Both very nice... More

Visited recently with families for the first time and was very pleased with our evening. Really prompt service, great modern European food selection and value for money. Was little noisy as it was very crowed, but we just added to the noise!! The meals were well presented, prepared, tasted great and the children were able to take uneaten potions home... More

My family of five had a wonderful dinner here. The food was fresh and tasty. The pizzas were loved by all and my salmon was fantastic. Our 7 year old was overjoyed with the children's menu which included a meal, drink and icecream!

The natural oysters were excellent, the scallops and salmon were fresh but a bit bland. The strudel was very disappointing, like something you'd get at a school fete Very pleasant and efficient staff

We ate dinner here in the busy holiday period and like most restaurants was full. This didn't stop the staff from being friendly and accommodating to all guests. The wine list is very diverse and well priced. Wood fired pizza and salads tasted amazing and were also reasonably priced. Entrée of oysters were really fresh and the wasabi prawns had... More

Was recommended by a local as having good cocktails. Was disappointed by the Mojitos (sorry my standard is a South East Asian resort...a tall glass, lots of fresh mint with the texture of the cane sugar and all the flavours balanced) Service was fine but a little slow at times. Seafood was fresh (oysters and calamari were great but prawns... More
