Went for a friends bday meal, nothing special about the decor, just a homely kind of place. The food arrived in a normal time frame, no long wait. The bread basket has delicious salty crispbread that makes up for the hard chewy mini rolls that are best avoided. I had the baked seabass and clams with grilled veg.. thought the portion was small, quite bland, nice and moist but the clams were few and tiny, and the veg was simply red pepper and aubergine saturated in oil, nothing special. Very plain and too small for £15. My bf had an okay pizza that didn't really fill him up.. and one of our group ordered the fish stew which was cod, langoustine, clams & squid.. but it was purely sauce and shells, she had to ask for the cod, which to their credit they bought our a breaded cod fillet on the side, but it looked quite dry and bland, and the shells were a nightmare for her to get open, she explained her reluctance to force them but was assured they were fine, but the contents were rubbery and stingy anyway, plus it was hot and uncomfortable to use her fingers for this, no tools to do it with. Those who had pizza were frustrated by very blunt knives that they had to saw away with to slice.
The waiter was running the floor solo, he had about 8 covers and was run off his feet, but still attentive and smiley. He did a great job of keeping on top of serving everyone and did his best to speedily fix any issues we had. His English wasn't great but he's a sweet friendly guy, and joined in the fun and humoured us when we asked for candles in the tiramisu to sing happy bday for our friend.. he dimmed the lights and put on a cheesy birthday song as well! He was great and made the night run smoothly despite the lacklustre food.
Basically it's like homecooking by someone who's not an amazing cook.. it's nice but not restaurant quality.
