Has become a regular jaunt with friends and colleagues. Reasonably priced menu. Have yet to be disappointed with food ordered. Superb cocktails. We will be back!

“Strawberries do need some sugar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

If you want to venture out to try a different type of pizza then you have come to the right place. The menu is average, the food could be better as well as the service. However the ambiance is quite nice. Unfortunately this restaurant isn't a favourite as they are just trying to hard to impress you with the name.

“Great Vibe and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a great after-work meeting place and is great to have a drink on the way home. The ourdoor area is especially popular in summer. The patrons tend to be in the 25 to 65 age group so you don't get the noisy, drunk youth market.

If you stay for a meal you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the varied menu with interesting and different flavours in many of their dishes. The prices are very good and the wine list comprehensive and well priced.

A word of advice though - if you want to eat then book a table as the Strawberry is very popular.

“Best pizza EVER!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Try the salami milano pizza, it's by far the best pizza you will ever have! I've probably had it a hundred times and never get bored of it. They also make a pretty good mojito to wash it down with!

“An enjoyable evening ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Seven of us enjoyed a great evening. Reception was a little lacking and seating was a bit cramped. the food, however, was served very quickly and was very good, no complaints. Brenda, our waitress, deserves special mention. Prices were quite acceptable. Oh, and the Irish coffee was much better than the usual concoction offered as such.
