“Could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We arrived on a Sunday evening and had a supper with some business colleagues. Service was excellent, however the food did not match. Two of the party were looking for a lighter option and had prego/steak rolls. They were not served the traditional way and steak strips instead of a piece of steak. Quality and taste was not good. The other person in the party had a fillet steak and were quite happy.

Lesson learned - Next time I won't order a Prego Roll.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Prices right and food very good, just a little to much noise for a restaurant. Service was in general okay, though a little slow and not so attentive. Parking was okay, though on a busy night one could run into problems.
