“Exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I visited this restaurant with my son and his Guidedog on a busy Saturday afternoon. I was very tight for time as we were on the way to a match and explained to the smiling waitress who greeted us that we needed to be served quickly. She explained which dishes could be turned around within 15 minutes and seated us quickly, offering a bowl of water for the guidedog.

The food arrived within the stated time and was very good quality. What an absolute pleasure to receive such friendly professional service. We will certainly return.

“Food lovely,front desk terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

I have been in this restaurant lots of time before,and have always enjoyed myself.but today Sunday the 29th we I entered the restaurant the girl at the desk was so rude asked for a table for 4,after she had finished talking to her co worker she brought us to our table she just through the menus on the table and walked away no enjoy your meal.i felt that we had stopped her having her conversation with her co worker that she was pissed off.only because the kids were hungry we stayed.i feel that this girl is not a peoples person and should not be doing the job she is in.

“Good night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This place was quite nice. I have to commend them on turning down the music. The last time that I went there, you could hardly hear yourself think, but tonight the volume was grand. I had a living social voucher which worked out quite well. For 55 euro, we got a combo starter to share( which was more than adequate), two steaks, fajitas, two pints and a cocktail.
