Shocking service! Disinterested staff and slow to get the food out. More than once had to remind them for drinks we'd ordered and then again when waiting an hour for a lasagne. I've included of a photo of my 'lasagne' - I wouldn't feed it to my dog. It was appalling and cost me £6.60, not to mention the obligatory... More

Ate here last night and will probably go back before I leave the island. I ordered nachos which were fine. Nothing out of this world, but no problems. The fajitas were served sizzling and the food was well cooked. Yes, you only get two flour tortillas. Deal with it, crybabies, or ask for an extra one. The servers were attentive... More

We ordered pasta fungi, pretty safe choice you'd think but the pasta was half overcooked and half hard. The mushrooms that where in it looked like cat poop and tasted the same. Very disgusting and would never recommend it to anyone. The waiters were very uninterested.

We ate at both the Mexican and the Italian next to it. The nachos were ok not the best but still edible. The mains we sampled the burritos, margarita pizza and al fungi pasta on 3 separate nights. Nothing to complain about, the food was filling and tasty so not sure how the other reviews are not great. The place... More

We were 10 minutes earlier before their opening hour and the waiter refused to let us in and told us to go back after another 10 minutes. Hmm… I think he can just let us have our seats and start browsing through the menu. We waited. Once we were seated, I realized that the table wasn’t properly cleaned as there... More

We tried to eat here but they were out of pizza. What kind of an Italian restaurant has sold out of pizza?

We paid RM225 for 4 adults, 1 child. Firstly, from reading the reviews, I would infer this: the polarisation in this place's reviews is probably due to the fact that people giving this a high score are not from countries/places where they would have tasted good nachos/pizza/pasta. Otherwise, people associated with the 'restaurant' are submitting misleading reviews. Because if you... More
