5 of us ate here on 29/05/14. Food and service were excellent. All 5 of us opted for the 2 course set menu which represents great value for money and a wide choice. Will definitely return.

We to the restaurant few weeks ago.It was friday evening and we haven't got a booked table. That wasn't a problem. Because it was really busy we've been waiting for food quite a while but it was really worthy. Seebas was amaizing! For sure we will come back!

There is a good atmosphere in this restaurant, and when we visited on a Saturday evening it was very busy, which is a good sign. The staff were literally running around but they remained attentive to our needs and we didn't have to wait too long for any of our courses to arrive. It is a good value restaurant, and... More

This restaurant could be good, but unfortunately we caught it on a bad night. Hopefully they were short of staff and this is not the usual standard of service. We arrived and our booking initially could not be found, service was done at speed, but when things went wrong were slow to correct. Memorable moments were three requests for a... More

What can we say! Saturday was indeed a bad day. 50 people booked and over 80 turned up. We also turned some people away knowing that we would not be able to give them our normal high standard of service. I appreciate of course that your party had booked but the busy night became a real issue when one of... More

Went last night. Food was excellent but the staff were so unfriendly. They were busy but a friendly smile or a little chit chat doesnt cost anything. We had our food served and plates cleared away briskly and we actually felt like we were in the way! Deserts served with no spoons and in the end had to fetch our... More

Thank you for letting us know that our standards fell below our normal high level. I hope that if you read the other reviews here, other than those from Saturday night, you will see that our service is normally excellent. What can we say!
