The Playwright never disappoints. We have visited the restaurant for many years when we have been on holiday in Elviria. First class food, excellent service and wonderful ambiance. We love it see you in February!

We hadn’t been for years, so not sure what to expect. But Kara made us feel welcome from the start. The food was very good and the service excellent, thanks to Kara. Even the live music was fun and entertaining.

This was one of the nicest restaurant experiences I’ve ever had! We went for the new €45 taster menu which certainly did not disappoint. I just wanted the food to keep coming, although I was quite full at the end and treated myself to their...amazing espresso cup. Being a mixologist myself I’m quite critical when it comes to my cocktails but these were amazing, if your a gin girl try their take on the classic gin bramble and the way they are served just makes them even more pleasurable. The girls Lori and Robyn could not have been more attentive, such lovely friendly girls. I could not fault the service. Next time I’m over I’ll definitely be back id like to try everything on the menu! The decor is just fabulous especially if ur one for a nice instagram photo!More

How the fruit is this a 4.5 rating on this platform ? THE WORST SERVICE EVER. Embarrassing. Biggest table there. Had to ask MULTIPLE TIMES for the drinks to arrive ? No one was there - so , hardly like it was so full/ busy.... Maybe because it’s out of season , ok fine, but act as if you give a rats ass and rather not be wondering around looking like air heads. Just tell the people that and we would get it. Horrible service, just don’t bother . Food all arrived at weird times , we waited probably 1.5 h between starters and mains ? Restaurant is off the highway so not aesthetic at all. Interior is made for young girls for Instagram with no class. don’t bother and get some nice steak or seafood somewhere else ?More
