The only thing that actually tasted good, was the shot we received after finishing our meal. Maybe a make up for the mistake(one of us received the wrong dish, and was presented with an 'appertly mixed, fish grill' but the only thing on the plate was one filet, so we have no idea what was actually on the plate but...

Freshly cooked, well presented and very... More

It was worth the drive, the mixed fish platter was delicious as were the king prawns. The child's pizza was very well received by my 3 year old & the... More

We have eaten here every time we have visited PDC but this was our worst dining experience so far. They were obviously very busy and when we entered, we were left standing around while the waiters buzzed around. It was actually another diner who told us to try upstairs. When we got there, nobody showed us to our table, we... More

We have eaten here for the past five or six years and have always had brilliant meals. But this year we were very disappointed. We waited ages before we were offered a drink and then ages before we ordered. We waited 30 minutes for our meal which was brought to us by an elderly man - obviously not one of... More
