Noisy but nice staff

Food OK but speaker from shopping centre entrance competing at full pelt with one at front of restaurant. Very noisy. Service not fast but waiting staff very pleasant. If you eat there you can sometimes get free parking at adjacent Novotel.

Just had lunch at Gecko. Order Spaghetti Al mare. The Spaghetti was not cocked well at all. I had to ask for pepper and Parmigiana after several tried to get the waitress' attention. Finally, when paying the bill I was charged 10% extra for Surcharge - Not even showing properly on the menu. when I complained, they showed me the... More

Had lovely breakfast. Crepes also lovely. Not many people dining and cant imagine why. Great gluten free options. Also dined at Mezes which is always packed, again dont know why as its not as good as Gecko's.

Just went in for a coffee and some dessert after the dinner rush - were offered no menus and tried unsuccessfully to flag down a member of the waitstaff for 25 minutes (hoping to order) until we eventually gave up and went next door to Mezes.

Don't order smoothies, no real fruits in them. And prepare to wait for 50 mins or more for your food to come. A lot people arrived after us got their food first. Not nice experience at all.

Highly recommend to eat here. Pleasant staff, nice atmosphere but most important the food was good. We ordered the famous Angus Sirlion medium well done and it is to die for...melts in your mouth!! Decent pricing too.

Had dinner here on a very wet weekday evening. However it was very warm and inviting inside. Service was good and I had the Seafood Stew which was very hearty and delicious. Definitely recommended.

Went to dinner with my wife. Chose this place at random. Staff were friendly, no complaints about the service as it was fairly quiet - a very rainy slow Saturday night. The food was plentiful. The price was good. And the restaurant was clean and tidy. Not so sure what this place would be like if it was busy as... More

Went for Sunday brunch with 4 friends. The location of the restaurant along the beachfront is fantastic and would have been even better on a sunny day. The restaurant was very busy but service could have been improved a lot. Drinks were ordered straight away but took 15 minutes to come out and we waited > 60 minutes for food... More
