Visited here for our tenth anniversary and overall enjoyed a fantastic meal and experience. Tomato starter superb and whilst there were slight issues with the seasoning on one of the main courses both the table staff and kitchen took the comments on board and amended the bill accordingly. Highly recommended, compliments to the establishment

Truly excellent lunch; food, presentation and service all exemplary and above all it tasted wonderful. Don't be put off by slightly 'bohemian' look; this is sophisticated food, executed with great skill and style. 3 courses £18.50 & only an extra £1.50 for 3 courses. Starters we had trout, tomatoes & summer veg; mains salmon & chicken plus side of fries;... More

We had eaten dinner here before and had been extremely impressed with the service and the food. This time a group of us went for brunch to celebrate a special birthday. The atmosphere obviously wasn't the same as the evening at one point we were the only ones there. The food was excellent but the service was very poor. One... More

The seeming confusion about the difference between the Hotel (access controlled by lift to Reception and key cards), Wine-Tasting (access only by appointment) and Restaurant (uncontrolled access) operations of the same name is probably due to each having a separate entrance and there being no internal access between the three. As customers of the Maiyango Hotel, breakfast in the restaurant... More

We had a lovely evening here. A cocktail to start, priced at £7.95. Then I had egg n soldiers for a starter, it was beautiful. Scallops and pork on samphire for a main which was truly beautiful, such wonderful flavours. A chocolate bombe for dessert, which was filled with cassis. Each course was wonderful and so filling. Lovely home made... More

Utterly incredible evening tonight. Can't praise this place enough. The staff were attentive friendly and engaging. This Is not a posh or pretentious place but warm and welcoming. We all enjoyed the food immensely the highlight for me being the chicken and the swordfish. It was clear very quickly there was a focus on everyone at our table enjoying everything... More

We booked a booth table and were not disappointed by the service we had. The restaurant was VERY busy but they seem to cope quite well. The food was very good but this was the first time we has taken out not grown up teenage children to a fine dining restaurant and as we thought it was just a little... More

Went here for a work party, felt it was too expensive (both drinks and food). Food was average, nothing special. Wouldn't choose to go here again.

I had my hen party here in January. We booked the private bar for a cocktail making lesson (situated where their old deli used to be) and it was great. The barman went through making numerous different drinks with us all in fits of giggles - he was very patient given the audience! We were allowed to put up decorations... More
