My husband and I were staying in Derby for the evening and I picked out this restaurant before we arrived and booked in advance. The booking process was simple and I got confirmation via email.
Neither of us had tried a restaurant of this nature so were prepared to give it a go. The menu is a little limiting and the dessert choice pretty non exsistent, nothing that interested us anyway.
On arrival we were offered a seat by the window, which actually was pretty cold as the air was blowing in from outside. There was a heater behind us but not really sufficient to keep me warm.
They offered us bread before the meal which was a nice touch but the rolls were stone cold and could have benefited from being warmed up.
I ordered risotto balls for starter which actually had no flavour at all, they were nicely cooked though.
We both ordered sirloin steak on the black rock grill which was the main reason for us going. We were advised by the staff to remove the steak from the hot volcanic rock and cut into small pieces. This did mean you got a more even cooked steak but they only gave us a side plate which was a little tricky for cutting up a sirloin. That said the steak was tasty.
The service received was very good but we feel restaurant slightly lets us down on taste of starters and limited menu choice.
