The views of the river and the squinty bridge can not hide that the attention to detail is a little lacking. On a visit when the restaurant was quite, the steaks were not cooked correctly and the one of the sides was placed on the wrong plate. My desert, while nice, did not match the menu description so I am not really sure what it was meant to be. If we had been paying full price, I would have been very unhappy. The use of discount vouchers is to attract new customers to return, paying the full price. Not this customer, very unlikely return.

Good service but then it was quiet.

Had an okay meal here, service was excellent but found little things with the food not up to what I was led to expect. Some dishes overpriced for what they were. Location and views every good though and I could be tempted back as the dessert was tasty.

Food was ok. But not exceptional. Expensive for what you get.

Drinks are vastly overpriced. Service is lacking.

Very good food and selection is very international. Something for everyone and prices are reasonable. INCREDIBLE flat bread pizza!

Deck next to river Clyde for outdoor dining. Has 4-5 beers on tap. Go!
