Fantastic meal. Stir fried Cajun chicken salad, but I asked for no salad and received the most delicious Mediterranean style vegetables. Asparagus, French beans peppers, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes. The end best meal ever! Have had this twice this week for lunch. Outstanding! But then the taste tat in is gorgeous too but no room today sadly. Thank you Pedro, Anna... More

The food was great. Staff pleasant and helpful and even though the place was full to bursting, there was no delay... More

Had cocktails here before, but this was the first occasion that we had eaten. Staff friendly and very efficicient. Surroundings are very well presented and provide a romantic atmosphere. Restuarant was busy with a cross section of couples and small groups. Excellent menu choice and good selection of quality wines. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, as Rugby is short...
