“Great food and atmosphere, but overpriced!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ate here for the first time to try something different. We were initially told that there would be live music, but were disappointed to find that the house band were unavailable.
The food, atmosphere and service was great. But we all felt that the portion sizes were small and the prices overpriced.
I would recommend this resturant, but be prepared to pay more than you would expect.
We will go back, but not too soon.

“Excellent Value and the food is good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Went today for lunch and had the "soup bowls" which are great value at 3 for 6:50.The bowls offer a good portion taster of other dishes for example beef chilli , jerk chicken and goat curry and many more. Very tasty good sized portions that I really enjoyed. My son had the Cajun chicken burger which he thought was great.. Well worth a visit ...don't be put off by the outside.

“Spot on, every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have visited this restaurant on three occasions now, and will definitely be returning! I had chilly the first time, and once I found out about half price steak night, steak on the other two occasions. It is definitely high-end dining at very reasonable prices. I plan to try the Crocodile next.

“First Rate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I've been here before but about 2 years ago. The food was delicious then and just as good today. The ambience was chilled (mid week) it was cold out but the staff made every effort to keep the warm in, including their warm service.

The food is high end but the prices not too expensive. All in this was a great second experience.

“Quality of food is a 10 out of 10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Me and my girlfriend went here for lunch after being recommended this place by a friend.
The food was absolutely delicious and great value on the lunch menu.
I have eaten in a lot of restaurants around the world and I would say that this is up there with the best.
