“Good food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Food is good and well prepared. The fish was well cooked. But the service was too slow, smiling but need to be more workmanlike. Meaning that you need to wait a lot before to eat. The manager was trying to mitigate and compensate, which is ok. Let's see the future improvements. A good address.

“Feel really let down by one of my past Favourites”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I love seafood, Plan was a few Oysters, nice bottle of Wine, simple quality piece of Fish,
Arrived to find the restaurant less than a quarter full,
Service was fine, ordered my Oysters, they were very good, they had already been separated from the shell, Quality was superb.
Only had a tiny piece of shell in the last one.
Mains were very poor, My fish was warm at best, also it was overcooked and had gone rubbery.
I did not have potatoes but asked for Broccoli, It was cold, even to touch.
My Wife’s Bream was over cooked and her potatoes were like little bullets.
We were asked by the excellent waiter if we enjoyed our meals, he pushed a little from our tone of fine.
He then offered free coffees which was a nice touch.
Anyhow, I quizzed him as to whether the staff receive tips and the answer was yes, which was pleasant !
My Wife best described the chain as becoming the “Beefeater of Seafood” shame because the Quality was always top before !
I have the memory of a Goldfish, so I may forget and return again.
