“Don't do it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We ordered 2 meals for the adults and two for the kids none of them were satisfactory.
1. Ham and cheese croissants ( burnt )
2.Poached Eggs, bacon and hollandaise sauce on the side. - eggs were over cooked with hard yolks, toast was tough like cardboard and sauce was forgotten, when waiter was reminded he returned with a little dish that he passed to me with his fingers in the sauce!! Argghh
3. Fish and chips ( cold and soggy )
4. Spanish salad ( what chorizo )
Coffee - ok.
The place smells like fried food and appears dirty/untidy. Toilets were grosse.

“Consistently underwhelming”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

40 minute wait for a lattè... 55 minute wait for a BLT and grilled prawns, only once prompted... Enough said.

“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We had an evening meal inside near the log fire. We found the staff very helpful, the menu had good variety and the bonus of a free entree or dessert with any main meal ordered. Portion were very generous and we found the quality of the food excellent. I had the Salmon and my wife had the Veal. Both were very good. There were a few other tables of people eating but we were the last for the night and there was no pressure on us to finish and leave.

“Worst food and service on the island.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Not 1 meal out of 4 came out right and it all tasted disgusting. One person at our table even had a lumpy coffee served to them. There are plenty of good restaurants on the island, I don't understand how they are still operating.
