“Over priced and average food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Went there with a group of friends for a birthday meal. The menu had lack of choice, was over priced and could not find a vegetarian option.
The starter arrived and the mushrooms had no taste. Then the main arrived which tasted over salty. The portions were small considering what you were paying for the meal.
Staff appeared friendly enough, but no atmosphere in the restaurant.

I will not be going back there.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We have been here twice in the last few weeks having not visited for a number of years. As others have commented service can be slow, but we were not in a hurry and all the food that we ordered was well worth the wait. This is not the cheapest of places to eat, but it was absolutely full on both occasions that we visited. We would visit again if in Cardiff and looking for something special.

“Only recommendation I can make about this place is 'Stay Away'”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This place is dreadful, tiny amounts of beef in the spezzitano, tough chicken breast in another dish and to be honest the service sucks. I'm no food critic but I know what's good and this place isn't.
