Good place to pop into for a take away coffee and treat. I would not recommend trying to sit in and have a nice quiet lunch as you will be disappointed.

Four of us took a break from Christmas shopping for a drink and snack. Although they were obviously busy we had only a short wait for a table. The drinks and food were excellent, and not outrageous city centre prices. There is also a small food and gift shop in the restaurant.

Our first visit was every thing I expected it to be, which was very good, good idea to pre-book, though I did notice even though it was a busy Saturday lunch time people queuing were seated quite quickly

We had Smooth chicken liver pâté, toasted Tuscan bread and cornichons and Buffalo mozzarella, vine ripened tomatoes, basil leaves, black olives and foccacia to start with and Linguine pasta with squid, mussels, clams, prawns with garlic, herbs and chilli to follow. We managed to have pudding, vanilla ice cream with strong espresso to pour over the top.
All the food was well prepared and cooked just right, all the ingredients was very fresh which was very noticeable in the taste, especially the mussels.

Many thanks to Steve and his team for providing very good service, we will be back.

We have been here for saturday breakfast many times before. last Saturday morning 9 am for breakfast - 2 people - so should be the average expeience? Waited to be seated only to be shouted at by a waiter for not standing where he wanted me. Then ignored for 15 minutes: food finally came (we had now been there for 50 minutes) but eggs were raw (whites were still liquid). replacement took so long my wife had finished her food by then. No appologies from anyone. This place may be busy but there are many other places were you get the same type breakfast with a much friendlier experience. My advice - avoid at peak times: if people are waiting to be setaed turn around and walk out because the staff cant cope when its busy. My advice to the manager: get some better staff and train them to deal with peak time demands!! If you dont you will loose more regulars like us.

We often pop in here as a break from shopping, but we always book on-line in advance as lunchtime queues can be very long. (But others is the queue look pretty unimpressed as you waltz past!)
