First of all, the food was excellent, however there are certainly issues with this restaurant. Unfortunately the reception area, and the restaurant area appear very run down. As previous reviewers have stated, the carpet is grubby and needs replacing. Because there were so few people dining, there was little atmosphere. The head waiter, or manager tried very hard and obviously... More

My sister had her wedding evening meal here as the reception was held in the Hotel where it is situated. I was expecting great things but it was all a little disappointing. I had the sea food paella which was passable but none of those who ordered steaks got them cooked how they had requested. My sister couldn't eat the... More

I went to this restaurant last week with a small group of friends. We had all previously been before about 2/3 years ago. What a difference this experience was from our last visit. To start with the reception area and the bar area is really looking shabby. The carpet in the reception area was filthy! Now to the restaurant -... More

Which we where every shocked! He made us feel very little as he kept saying "I don't talk to women, men only"... More

Me and my partner eat here all the time and it never disappoints, the lobster ravioli for starters is great and one of the best raviolis I have ever had. Lamb shank is always amazing and the fish options are great too. I have been here on countless occasions and never been disappointed, the drinks are a little steep but... More

Husband loved his steak with peppercorn sauce. We had no starter or desert, and the only 2 faults with the food, were 1) that I couldn't finish my risotto as I was so stuffed it was so packed with seafood!! 2) the 'homemade bread' basket was just rolls that looked like they came from a pack of part baked rolls...

DO NOT eat here. The drinks are overpriced. A pint of San Miguel is £5.20. This is Romford not Mayfair!!! I went for dinner with a group from my office and we were sat in very cramp conditions. There was no room to the side or behind without bumping into people. The food was average and the service was not... More

Set meals are good value. Fresh pasta is usually the best option. Fish and meat specials usually good, sometimes a touch over-cooked for me. Don't always need a balsamic reduction.
