We decided to go for an evening meal at the above place and I must say I was really disappointed with the food. I've now been disappointed on at least 3 occasions now so have decided we are not going back which is a shame because you get a good deal with a Odeon ticket you can take and get... More

We had the beef burger and chicken burger which were both excellent. If you like it hot go for the chilli option. They have Estrella on draught. Bonus. Service was excellent. We noticed they were serving paninis but they're not on the menu. Asked at the bar about them and the barman forgot and started serving someone else. We reckon... More

A restaurant with consistently good food and with a bit of attention could become much better. As with many restaurants, staff is the weak point because if they would act a bit more professional, they certainly would have a lot to offer. Good prices with generous portions.

Along came another young lady who took our drinks order 10 minutes later, next to us a table with children had been waiting half an hour to have... More

I'll start with the good... The portions were quite generous, the place was nicely laid out and clean, the staff were pleasant and there's plenty of parking. OK, now to our experience. We stood next to the 'wait here to be served' sign until a passing stressed out waiter asked us to sit in the bar area where we waited... More

We went to Baffito's for the first time ever, a little nervous because of a few negative reviews. We could not have been more pleased. The staff were warm and friendly, the menu choice was great. There were quite a few customers in for a Tuesday evening. We both had creamy garlic mushrooms for the first course, delicious and plentiful.... More
