“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were very pleasantly surprised on an impromptu visit to discovery bay. Food was exceptionally tasty with a great choice on the menu, in fact 3 of us couldn't decide what we would like the most therefore the very helpful and knowledgeable waitress recommended we have a selection to share. What a great idea! We all enjoyed every dish. Portions are generous. Overall recommended for relaxed atmosphere and tasty food

“Not lived up to the hype I'm afraid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Attended with a group of friends for evening meal, was really looking forward to it but unfortunately very disappointed!
The restaurant isn't as big as I'd imagined and the layout is not great, our table was right next to the door which meant was very drafty.
The staff were ok slightly slow in service, and it wasn't a fully booked restaurant.
The food....well I had a tapas for two starter, and to be honest it was nothing special, the ribs were utterly vile, tasted like they'd been covered in aftershave/perfume, the spring rolls were ok, and the chicken wings bland.
For my main I had the jerk chicken with rice and peas and again I found it very bland, no spice or kick to it at all!!
Overall I found it a disappointment, overpriced and not at all appetising, I will not return.

“Fantastic Experience, your efforts have paid off guys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Having eaten here several times, but not for about a year, and then the experience was quite frankly disappointing, tonight was a refreshing surprise. Richard is now there full time, and it shows, service was flawless and the meal was as it was when I first ate here years ago.

Their food leaves your mouth blistering with lots of different amazing flavours and thats why it's so enjoyable.

Definitely would recommend this place, you won't be disappointed.

“Really lovely food”

Visited with a group if friends last week. The food was exceptionally tasty didn't have desert so can't comment, staff were friendly ... Only criticism is slightly overpriced but this won't stop me going back

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

i love this restaurant. the food is fantastic, the staff are lovely, the food is great value for money. they cater to every type of visit, ie couples, group and family. when i have gone in a large group we have had platters which is cheaper and u get a great range of food. if ur unsure of what to have the waiting staff are great at recommending. atmosphere is lovely at all times. not too loud or quiet
