“Terrible service but great restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Great food and beautiful location however the waiter brought out the wrong meals and instead of changing them or discounting the bill told us these ones tasted better anyway. Also despite their being 3 waitresses and an almost empty restaurant it was impossible to get any of their attention as they were too busy talking. However as the food and location was so good we would probably return so don't let the service put you off!

“Worth going out of your way to SKIP it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Filthy. The food was decent, the location is nice, but the staff were snooty and the restaurant was dirty, especially the restroom. I completely regret going when I could have spent the same amount in a cleaner place.

We recently dined at Eastbank and had a good experience. Food was great and served in a timely manner. Staff were friendly and attentive. We would happily eat here again.

“Great spot, shame the staff were more interested in chatting to each other!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Picked this restaurant because of menu and amount of heaters and when we asked for table for 4, I asked about heating and were told they could pull the stand alone over if the umbrella one isnt enough. Short version, not allowed to use heater, moved to another table with working umbrella heaters and left with no wait staff either. 15 mins later interrupted a conversation amongst staff to get some drinks and food happening, and sadly had to do that again....and again. Terrible service, won't go there again
