I went there on Saturday 26th November. There were 32 of us pre booked and meals chosen. The place was heaving (maybe due to the 2 courses for £10.95). We could hardly move with so many people and stressed staff rushing around and shouting. We were bundled towards our tables, and 6 of us seeing the long tables full sat... More

Visited on a Friday night with friends who have been to this restaurant before and recommended it. Food was fantastic and so was the service. Will definitely visit again when in the area.

Decent enough basin Italain restaurant. Nice pizza and house wine ok. Service good enough but tricky when our server didn't speak English. Not sure if I would go again but it's ok and we were stuck for choice as mant restaurants in that area don't open on Sunday night

We visited this restaurant on 25th October before a gig at the Cliffs Pavilion. The early bird menu (£10.50 for 2 courses) was excellent value, and the fish & veg good quality and perfectly cooked. Wine was good value compared with other restaurants too.
