Having eaten in the restaurant only once before and not been overly impressed,we thought we would give it one more go. We were sadly very disappointed again. The general atmosphere was good but the service and quality of the food was well below average.
There were 9 of us in our party. The quality of the meals ranged from average to poor. All the meals needed seasoning, especially the pasta dish which was so bland three quarters was left. But it was more than just seasonsing. The quality was no better than your average pub grub and with some meals it was much worse! The portion size of the two of our fish dishes was appalling - you would have received more on a starter plate. A tiny fish, a couple of chickpeas and a chopped up slice of chorizo does not constitute a meal. We needed to order extra side orders. The service was also well below par.we ordered drinks and had to ask three times to chase them up.
Considering the above, we felt cheated at the price of about £25 per head. We will definitely not return. We all agreed we would rather have got a takeaway!!
