Went there for breakfast, was impressed with the quality of simple yet hearty meals. Great meal to start the day and go out discovering this amazing country.

Thank AnnChambers60713

I went here for dinner with my partner after browsing the website. It was a complete disappointment. The website states that it is an "up market & relaxed atmosphere restaurant". The statement couldn't be further from the truth. This is much more a cafe trying to be a restaurant. We ordered garlic bread for starters, which was served as warm bread with melted butter and no garlic. We had the surf and turf for main. This was a little better but very underwhelming. We would have been a lot less disappointed if the restaurant hadn't attempted to class itself as an upmarket restaurant. I'm sure this would have been suitable for a family meal but not for a romantic evening with a loved one.

We have eaten here 3 times in the past few weeks. Prefer breakfast to dinner meals. First time we went for dinner, very disappointed with all 3 meals ordered. But had voucher to go again for dinner, thistime it was reasonable. Have had one breakfast there andit was good. And have voucher to return again, so hopefully it will be ok again. If it wasn't for vouchers we have paid for, I don't think I'd be returning in a hurry.
