What a lovely place, the staff cannot do enough for you! The food was amazing too! We chose from a meal or tapas, there was no problem having both on the table either. Everything was cooked to perfection, I will definitely be going back, would love to take my family there as I know they would love it too. It's... More

This place is so friendly, the food is stunning and the staff are superb. I don't recommend places lightly but this is the best outside of the city in Essex.

Very very rude owner, (minika I think her name was) when I questioned the service. Over priced for below average quality meal. There is a toilet right by the kitchen entrance which is odd and from what I could see the kitchen looked very small and greasy, infact cleanliness is an issue throughout, food on windows, salad on the floor...

Decided to try the new mid week set menu having recently had some excellent Tapas at Zabrano's. Their is a good varied choice on the menu which is excellent value at £14.95 for 2 courses or for an extra £5 it includes a half bottle of house wine. All the food we ordered was excellent and flavoursome, service was laid... More

Went with mum and sister. Staff are really nice. Very laid back place. Food was ok. Nothing special. Prices weren't to bad either. I would go back, but I wouldn't rush and may look to try somewhere else. As I say. Nice staff though!

Had a lovely two-course meal with friends on a Friday night, food was scrummy, staff were very efficient and friendly. Would definately recommend. Sat downstairs as with a friend in a wheelchair, staff were extremely helpful getting her heavy chair in and out.
