“Great vegetarian meal”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

My first visit. Went with group of six friends, pre ordered meal as going to theatre. Food was served quickly, one meal was missing but it was quickly resolved. Very friendly and pleasant staff. Lovely atomsphere in resturant. Cheaper if you register on line. We had set meal. starter of mushrooms wasn't much to talk about. My main was courgette fritters, lots of cous cous with veg mixed in, large fritters and dips, good size meal, sticky toffee pudding was light and lovely. We were out in time for theatre which is only short walk away. Will be back to take family.

“Central for theatre or city hall events”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My daughter and I ate here yesterday evening prior to a concert at the City Hall. The food was good, but not really out of the ordinary. The service was either full on, or not at all. All in all, a bit of a mixed bag. I'd go again as it's central, and hope that it was just an off night on a sunday in February.

“Still doing great”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I think this is my favourite restaurant in the City Centre. Went here for a meal before the theatre with three other friends. The place was packed, but the service was exceptional, so organised and attentive. We had garlic bread to share for starters, plenty to keep us going while we decided on the main course, and absolutely delicious. Three of us went for the Smoked Haddock Rissotto and the fourth for the papardelle. All meals were superbly cooked, and tasted fantastic. No room for pud, but managed teas and cappuchinos between us. With the 1/3 off deals it is excellent value for money.

“Great Pre Theatre Meal”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Visited at 17:30 on 14/2 with a friend before visiting the Theatre, we had not booked a table but was quickly greeted and seated by a very friendly waiter. Our order was promptly taken and our food arrivied in an acceptable time, we ate of the table de hote menu and the choices and food was good.

There was a great atmosphere and overlooking the winter gardens it feels like you are on holiday.

The only reason I did not rate a 5 is that on the menu they adverstise Ballinis 2 for 1 but was advised this was not on offer as it was Valentines day!!
