Very busy night along the port so ended up in here. Got a bad feeling early and wished we had left. Service was surly and looked like they could not care less. Pizzas where ok but rest of food very poor . Asked for mustard with my steak a plastic bottles was slammed down at the opposite end of the... More

After our unwelcoming "welcome" the owner recovered a simple situation by simply cleaning & setting a free table swiftly. 30mins after ordering and reminding them about our starter (they had forgotten to even place it) to share, the lifeless and tasteless ensemble arrived and set the tone for the less than mediocre main course which was delivered, like every other...

We stopped there on a sunny evening because the wife wanted pizza. The pizza listed on the menu seemed a bit more original than average and they were actually fine. The crust was thin and tasty, the toppings were generous. The service was very (too?) fast.

Pizzas were actually fine, but tuna steak was clearly a frozen one and came with fries cooked in old burnt stale oil. Might go to get takeaway pizzas again but very poor restaurant... More

Sadly, the ambiance and food of this restaurant didn't live up to it's initial good impression. The only ambiance was provided by the chef's radio/TV and the food was so fast, he almost didn't give the microwave oven time to finish warming it up - I wouldn't mind so much if the restaurant was busy and the meals were complicated...

We walked in to a half empty restaurant on a Saturday evening and the waitress grunted at us to usher us to a table gave us the menu and then ignored us for 20 minutes. When the food arrived you could tell it was from packets and not fresh and home cooked. The prices were inflated compared to the food... More
