“Good food but a little overpriced and issue with bill payment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This Is our second time , we enjoy the atmosphere of the outdoor patio, the service was good we both had the fish special of the day, the sauce was rather spicy and I suggested to the server to let others know. We did enjoy our meal but don't remember it being as expensive on our last visit. The biggest issue was our bill it was $85 and we used a prepaid MasterCard which is just like cash. The card was declined twice so it was necessary for us to pay cash. When we called the company who issued the card the next day they informed us that the restaurant had tried to charge $109 on a $100 gift card therefore taking an tip of $24 without asking us this was why it was declined. I believe Customers should be allowed to tip accordingly . We are accustomed to tipping generously but a 28% tip without asking seems unacceptable.

“Charming ambiance, eclectic menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Retreated to this quaint restaurant during a torrential downpour in Kingston. Many others had the same idea, so the place was busy. The staff was friendly, even during this unusually busy time, so we didn't mind the long wait for drinks and food. The artwork and collection of pig memorabilia is fun to look at.

“Patio Is Very Nice on a Sunny Afternoon”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Spent the afternoon and a late lunch at this very busy restaurant. Almost everything and anything you can imagine on the menu and for the gluten intolerant, 50% of the desserts are gluten free including a really good chocolate cake. Street parking can be difficult to find. Service was good but somewhat slow at times but anytime we needed something, staff were very attentive. The mussels were very good-good portions and fresh while the soup and sandwhich combo was just the right size. Food was good overall but somewhat pub-like which is just fine but might not be for those who are fussier. Overall, a good spot and reasonable pricing.
