Excellent food

Visited again, last week for my daughters birthday, the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service very good, owner came round asking everyone if all was well which was a nice touch. Only thing I would say is that the ladies toilets are in desperate need of a refurbishment.

First of all, I think our waiter must have been new, so I'm trying not to be hard on someone I'm hoping is learning the ropes. He was definitely very friendly and did at least check when he didn't know the answer to queries rather than trying to vamp. but it did mean that the process of ordering etc did... More

My partner and I often come here on a saturday night (we have been going to Calypso before it was relocated and we love it! We've introduced both of our families to it and Calypso is now a family favourite! We've eaten here at both lunch and tea and we cannot complain one little bit. The service is fantastic and... More

On arrival we sat at the bar as we waited for a table. There is a good choice of drinks available and it is definitely a nice place to go for a few drinks with family/friends. We booked a table for 8:00pm and was seated at 8:15pm which we found was very good to say how busy the restaurant was.... More

Family party for ten, some with special dietary requirements all catered for without fuss, served by friendly, professional staff who helped make the evening a wonderful experience. The food was superb, sharing platters for two immense and a brilliant way to a sample everything. Haven't eaten out in my home town for years since moving away and last tried Dave's... More

We booked at table for 8pm and only got seated at 9.15pm, the restaurant out lay looked liked a market hall with bedsheets on the table, I still kept my chin up thinking the food would compensate the look of the restaurant. The service at this place was difficult to say the least and the host was something out of... More
