“Family Outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We decided to eat at Sambuca on the spur of the moment. I have to say that I am not a big fan of the chain and find the food not very good. However, we went at about 4.00p.m.on a Saturday afternoon and were greeted by pleasant staff. The food was excellent value for money and was enjoyed by all of us. You could not complain about portion size and the service was very good indeed. I will certainly return.

“You get what you pay for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband and I have been a good few times as it's cheap,cheerful and close by.Never had any complaints about the food or the service.You are made to feel a little rushed though as your table is cleared the minute you set your cutlery down.The waiting staff are always happy to help and efficient though.It's always really busy and my one complaint is that they allow customer's children to run wild which is really off putting.We have started looking around for somewhere a bit quieter and less hectic
