“Love the Cheerful Chilli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I came here for my Birthday in February with a large group of friends.

We were seated at a large table upstairs which is really cosy and quite private. I am not a vegetarian and nor were a lot of the people which were in our group but we all had a fantastic time and found the food out of this world. We opted for the banquet and it wall all simply delicious. I especially loved the caramlised onion tarts, nachos/salsa and of course the puddings :)

There was more than enough food for all of us and the servings were very generous. I like that you can take your own alcohol so then at least you can take a bottle that you like rather than paying restaurant prices for not a very nice bottle.

I am yet to visit during the day but i am looking forward to doing so after a walk on the Chevin.

I look forward to booking and eating here again very soon! Love the place!

“First Visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Service was slow between courses and the chairs are VERY uncomfortable.
Two of our party had the chilli and were disappointed, 2 had the chimichanga and enjoyed it. The sharing platter was also very tasty and all enjoyed that.
It was by sheer luck we found out it is not licensed before we set off and were able to take some wine. it would be a good idea to let customers know this when booking.
All in all, a shame it didn't live up to expectations. Sorry!

“A first visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We saw a review in a local magazine & thought it would be an ideal place to dine with the vegetarian in our party. I booked on the day & we had a very good meal. The portions are very generous & very tasty. It was a good evening, the only minor critism was that the service was a bit slow but the staff were extremely pleasant & attentive. We wil return.

“Byob, it gets very hot upstairs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Fabulous food especially the banquet. Byob. As confirmed meat eaters I sometimes think of bringing my own meat but wouldn't as this would do the food a dis -service and I am sure be offensive because it truly is fabulous. Bring a torch for the car park though.
