We enjoyed a wonderful evening booked and payed for by my daughter. It was our wedding anniversary, we were well greeted and seated with them congratulating us on our occasion. The food was fabulous and the wine was a suggestions made by the waiter which was also wonderful. My husband and I were, as always, sufficiently full and impressed. Will... More

We dined there recently and have this to say - in our opinion, this restaurant 's pretensions are not matched by the chef's abilities and the owner's churlish manner. The food provided was far from inexpensive and the presentation was poor - no finesse at all. In particular, a huge - and burnt - croquette stood out. Also, the chef... More

We are infrequent visitors to Coles due to its distance from our home. We had a table booked and had a very pleasant meal. Service and food were very good as would be expected for the price. Parking nearby depends a bit on luck.

Booked a table last minute with colleagues and our client. Had a reservation at 7pm for 4 people. Lovely restaurant, it was pretty quiet for mid week but it did mean we had a choice of tables. Service was great. Between cocktail recommendations, starter suggestions and my colleague who has more food allergies than one cares to admit, the staff... More

We had a diner in Coles restaurant, the main dishes and pudding were excellent, very good service also. The wine suggested on the board could have been better (french from languedoc)

Atmosphere - lacking, no music, dirty carpets, dirty crockery & cutlery. Awful, smelly toilets and cheap, outlet soaps. Service - apathetic, no greeting. No one happy to seat us. No smiles from our main server. Manager / owner was slightly better, cracked a joke and at least smiled. Food - premium prices, substandard quality. Burnt breads, tasteless meat, unseasoned vegetables,... More
