Great every time

Been to this great restaurant several times now and not once have I been disappointed. The service is fast and friendly and you couldn't ask for better quality food for the price. Best value in Southend hands down.

Used to go here regularly a few years back, but was disappointed after experiencing sickness from eating a steak there. originally it was a very nice place, with a very good reputation, but I feel it's gone downhill over the last few years. Its 'just' average now, and offers a good selection of Italian/mixed dishes, but is highly priced. Not... More

We really wish we hadn't bothered they couldnt even get a fillet steak with no sauce right, after waiting over... More

We went here for Fathers Day and had a lovely meal with family and friends. The food was superb and fantastic value, however the service lacked the warmth of the old owners and there was no real interaction between the staff and customers.

Food was amazing as always, had the sirloin steak, medium to well done and it was cooked to perfection. There were 5 of us and we all had something different and each meal was absolutely delicious.
