Had dinner there with my wife. Extensive food and wine menu. Had the calamari starter and trio fillet which were both cooked to perfection. My wife had the avacado ritz and pork belly which she also enjoyed. Service and ambiance were excellent. A bit pricy but good nonetheless.

The food is still just okay, but far overpriced. The service was good. ...but the location is bad, and I believe can be very... More

We were part if a very large party so it is difficult to judge. The set menu was good value for money. The service was a little slow but our waiter was helpful and friendly. It is not fine dining but the food is quite nice. I would choose to sit on the balcony if the weather was nice. Inside... More

Always busy and a very cosy feel inside - similar to Dros restaurant. Good friendly service from the waiters.

It was really quiet that evening and I left the money on the... More

Went there on Sunday 4th of May for a family lunch, what a disappointment. Poor service, poor food, whole restaurant, bar area and toilets area dirty, cutlery dirty, not at all La Romantica standards. Sorry to say but we wil not be back.

Very friendly, helpfull and good value for money. Would recommend La Romantica. I like the idea of being able to take your own wine and pay corkage.
