“Very poor attention to detail”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is the second time we have eaten at this restaurant. The prices are good as are the deals. Our impression of the restaurant has been the same on both occasions. The food is equivalent to what you could make at home. The service is friendly but there were a number of basic mistakes that could improve standards very easily. For example our dinners took 45 minutes and prompting to arrive the first time we went and couples who arrived later than us were served before us. Bread is served without plates to eat it on, pizza wasn't cut into slices when we got it and we got served water without glasses(these mishaps occurred on both occasions we ate here). Overall without these mistakes the restaurant would be a reasonable option considering the prices, given a lack of alternatives in MAHON point.

“Excellent food, great service, great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

I ate here before going to the cinema.
The place wasn't very busy but it was a Monday night. I received a warm and friendly welcome and offered a choice of tables. The atmosphere and decor is nice and warm.
There is an excellent menu and some special options like the starter/dessert, main and drink for €15.75 which I had.
There was complimentary bread and flavoured oil.
I had the garlic bread with mozzarella cheese which was presented like a mini pizza and was delicious.
For main I had the tagliatelle carbonara which was a generous portion and very filling.
Staff were very friendly at all times.
Highly recommended and will certainly be back and will bring friends.

“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Have had lunch here three times in the past few weeks and each time I've been very impressed. Good value for money, tasty food with a broad range of choice, and the service is excellent. We've always been greeted with a smile and were never left waiting too long to order. Also, the toilets are spotless. Credit is due to the manager and the rest of the staff. It's not often I've come across such excellent all round service and I'll be back many times I'm sure.

“Meal deals offer good value but the food is very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Its sad that this probably is one of the better places to eat in Mahon Point. The food is very average and the service poor. The meal deals offer good value for money but I wouldnt have been happy to pay full price for what I got.

“Best option for food at Mahon Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Ate here a few times both with and without small children and,experience is always positive. Food is authentic in ingredients and flavours. Friendly service. The best spot in the shopping centre to eat if you want something more substantial than a sandwich. Great value too.
