We went in here after being persuaded by outside staff to come in and eat, we were sat there 10 minutes before they even come over to take drinks order, Then asked about a dish on the menu and had a brash reply which could not really understand then waiter rushed off. We drank our drinks and left.

I think La Gondola is one of the better restaurants in the vicinity, it is more tourist oriented and in a fine location. It does get busy in the evenings, we ate at lunch time and the food and service was very good. The staff were amongst the most cheerful in the area and the prices sensible.

We were really impressed with the food and service here. The waiters were really helpful and friendly and the food was beautifully cooked. The price was reasonable too. Coupled with the view, this restaurant is well worth a visit!

Six of us ate here one evening. Although the other four seemed to enjoy their meals, we were not impressed.
