“Great food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Visited for a pre-theatre meal on Sunday evening. They offer a 3-course meal for just £16.95 (off an abridged menu) or 2 x 3-course meals and a bottle of house wine for £45.00. The choice of this menu was good and the quality if the food was excellent. Unfortunately the service was a little slow which meant pudding was rushed and no time for coffee but would not hesitate in returning.

“Great food in good location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

This reataraunt is in a great location close to the entrance of the Grand Hotel and the top of the old cable car lift from the promenade. Good, authentic food at fair prices. Outside is a little tatty but do not be put of as inside is very clean, well run and a real pleasure.

“Good Italian food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We ate here twice on a recent holiday and enjoyed both meals. The menu is interesting, with plenty of choice; and the Pre Theatre menu (available all evening) is good value. The portions are generous and the flavours bold, so you shouldn't leave still hungry. There is a range of Italian wines on offer, and the coffee is good. The service was efficient, and we would certainly eat here again.
If you fancy a real ale beforehand, try the excellent Scholars Bar just up the road.

“Very nice meal at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We eventually found the restaurant & like many other reviewers would have probably not given it a second thought due to the dowdy decor of the front We enjoyed our meal very much the service was good & the pre-theatre menu was excellent value. Would definitely visit again when in the area

“Great Service and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Having fallen upon this restaurant about five years ago we have never been disappointed, probably visited every year since as usual quite bussy and turning away hungry dinners without a reservation. The menu is changed several times a year so you have to try something new. this time I had a mushroom risotto with a perfectly cooked and delicious steak and my wife had the Sea Bass, which was cooked perfectly. The sweets were good but a nuts were in a great number limiting our choice. very pleasant coffee to finish a most enjoyable evening.
