My husband and I visited this restaurant with very high hopes as it was recommended by a local resident. The location and service were very good, but the food was disappointing. My husband had the entrecôte which was more fat and gristle than meat. My duck was ok, but the overall feeling was that the meal fell short of expectations.... More

I am astonished at how bad the food here was. Overlooked pasta 'macaroni' swimming in oil and lardons which were gristly and all fat - completely in edible ! The starter was tasteless and chucked together. My friends had pork and chips and ribs with chips - both meals served upon a wooden board and piled as high as a... More

In over 280 reviews, I've only given a 'poor/terrible' score to about 30 restaurants, but I see no alternative with this place, and I notice that I'm not alone. My criticisms relate to bad quality; bad supervision; bad cooking and bad attitude. On arrival, the terrific garden setting and the interesting menu made us think that the recommendation we'd had...

Arrived at 8.30pm on a Saturday evening with a party of six. The restaurant was busy and the staff were rushed off their feet coping with the tables! We were... More

A cute garden for a lunch that started with "salade de poulpe"(fresh and generous. Then the menu's cornerstone: the lamb shoulder roasted for hours. It is so good, unique, memorable. Especially when accompanied with a superb Sardegna 2008 red wine. I didn't tell you? The wine list is great. One more reason to give them a call to book a... More

We were a large family party with four very young children in tow. The staff did their best to accommodate us and we appreciated that. The starters were imaginative and delicious but the main course of spicy spare ribs was pretty dreadful. Looked unappetising and was poor value. Disappointing generally.

Pujols is a beautiful setting for this absolutely lovely restaurant. We have eaten here 3 times in the last 3 years and every time have been wowed by the inventive and tasty food! Lovely food, lovely wine & good service. Meal for 2 with a bottle of wine €74.00 last night.
