“Lovely local restaurant with reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions & love it. It is a lovely local restaurant, with very friendly staff & a great atmosphere. There are specials available & there was a £12.95 for 2 courses menu on up to Christmas. On an visit earlier in the year I took my 4 & 5 year old children..the staff made such a fuss of them & were willing to halve any dish available on the menu for my son's which was great. Always recommend this restaurant to friends for a reasonably priced meal, which is close to home. Definitely worth a visit.

“Cannot fault it, or understand why any reasonable person could!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Having visited Paulo's on numerous occasions I can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal or bad service. Yes it can be busy at times but surely that's the mark of a successful business. It's wrong when people criticise the minor details, when they should enjoy the ambience and be grateful to be in a lovely warm and friendly environment.
You could pay a lot more for a lot less!
Very rare to have get such a quality restaurant locally.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We ate at Paulo's once again last night, as we love this restaurant, we went with two friends and had a FANTASTIC meal as usual, the food is always first class as is the service from ALL the staff, it was lovely and busy with a fantastic atmosphere, we always choose this restaurant as it is always consistent and the food is of a VERY high quality and always cooked fresh and within sight of your table too which is good to see! In response to the "What a Disaster" review, well, what can I say other than firstly do you not have a spell check? Secondly we have been eating at this restaurant ever since Paulo took over and we have NEVER had a bad experience in fact we go to numerous restaurants and this one stands out above many other good quality restaurants! But I guess the moral of the story is "Some people are only happy when then have something to moan about" Anyway if you have not already been to Paulo's then get it booked now as you don't know what you are missing out on, it's a little gem ! Keep up the good & hard work Paulo & Staff and Thank you for a FANTASTIC meal last night and we can't wait to visit you again x

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

Just returned from another amazing meal at Paulos. We all chose off the Christmas menu at £19.95 per person for a delicious 3 course meal, with plenty to choose from. Although it was busy once again, we have always had great service and great food! Paulo and his staff can never do enough for you, and do their upmost to make you feel at home and to customise any dish to your liking. Everyone I know that goes to this restaurant speaks highly of the service and food, and I do not understand how any one can have a bad word to say about it.

Thank you for another great night.. We will be visiting very soon!

“What a disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Having eaten at this restaurant before we are local diners we thought it would be a good idea to take some visitng friends.we booked our table for 8.45 but upon arrival the restaurant was very busy we didnt have a table ready until gone 9 oclock but at this stage we were ok because we had a drink a the bar even though we had no were to wait .at this point i did notice there were a lot of people waiting for food but we decided to wait for our table but unfortunatley we still had not ordered our meal by 9.30 we had a taxi booked at 11.15 so initially we thought a good 2 hours would be long enough .by 9.45 weall decidedit would be best to pay up & leave.my partner did try to settle the bar bill but the owner then decidede it was our fault that we had not been served because we were early apparently are table was booked for 9 oclock ( that being just a 45 min wait)also it was only to be expected because they were busy ,i always thought that is why you should stagger your bookings to avoid waiting any lenght of time but whom am i to say ive onlybeen a chef for 25 years..so themoral of the story is dont visit paulos when theyare very busy make sure you are not prompt for your table as it will be ll your own fault. In the end we didnt pay for our bill because we are law abiding citizens & didnt want to get into a full blown arguement with mr paulo .thisvisit has put us off dining there again even thoughin the past the food has been excellent unfortunatley we didnt get as far as a piece of garlic bread .
