We were staying locally and this restaurant came highly recommended. We reserved a table and were promptly seated. That was the only thing that happened swiftly unfortunately. We waited for almost 45 minutes for our wine and then within minutes our starters arrived (soup and calamari). We then waited almost another 45 minutes for our mains (salmon and steak). Dessert...

Stopped in on a Sunday night, was seated on the patio, beautiful restaurant, ordered our food which was very good But was sent fries instead of veggies as ordered, so I notified the waitress, by the time the veggies arrived at the table I had finished my plate. Staff need to pay more attention to their customers. If in the... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant, and as we were checking out the menu in the afternoon a local of Magag offered her recommendation unprompted. We made reservations and were eager to come back in the evening. Pinocchio has a great atmosphere and we were able to sit in the "outside" area. Service was fantastic and the food... More

We were there from 2 hours away to try this restaurant. We liked the decor and the nice terrasse. The hostess was very welcoming. It ends there. Our food was bad. Wrong temperature. Bland. Soggy fries. Overcooked tasteless badly done fish'n chips. Beef tartare, requested very spicy, ended up no spice and no taste. For a 50$ bill (12$ for... More

My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant this week. This was my wife's second visit (last year) and the food and service standards have not dropped one iota. We both had the salmon tartar, and it was excellent, as were the French fries. Price was very reasonable, and we will most certainly be back when we are in... More

Excellent food. Risotto very good. Wine excellent. All 8 in our party were very pleased. The waitress translated everything into English for 3 of us.

Sat down at 7:30, and ordered by 7:45. Salad arrived at 8:30. Entree arrived at 9:30. Slow, slow, slow. I mentioned to our waitress that the service was unforgivably slow. She said she'd relay the message to management, though they didn't really seem to care. I won't be back. The food isn't bad, but once you order it becomes a... More

The restaurant accommodated us even though we did not have a reservation. The salmon was excellent and the fish and chips were exceptional.

We went on a Thursday night for the 22$ three course meal. Added an extra for 5$. Started with the cold parsnip velouté which was very refreshing and a bit sweet. Great start! I then had the iceburg salad with blue cheese dressing. Salad was very crisp and the dressing had just the right amount of tang. Our main arrived... More

First of all the ambiance is very nice in this restaurant, and the service was impeccable. It is unfortunate that the food did not match either the decor or the service. We had for appetizers the smallest oysters I have ever in my life seen and it was explained to us that in their minds anyway, these were considered large.... More
