“A restaurant that consistently serves good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Went there recently to celebrate a birthday with friends. Food was fabulous. The menu and specials give ample choice. All the food served to us and indeed to those around us looked and smelled beautiful. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful in a non intrusive way. Always worth a visit if in the area.

“Variable food, a little lacking in atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We ate here on the Monday evening of a bank holiday weekend which may account for a slightly wearied atmosphere. The menu is ambitious, aiming to be a modern eclectic style, and it comes off at times. The first courses were well done; such as the seafood platter my son had and my pork meatballs. The main courses were really huge and the falafel two of us chose as a main course was a bit crumbly and more of a paste. The desserts were good.

“Lovely meal, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Had a delicious meal here on a Thursday evening recently. The restaurant offered a set price menu until 9oclock whereas many other restaurants only offered a set price menu until 7pm which was a little early for us. There was a good choice of food on the menu and wines were reasonably priced. The food itself was delicious and well presented and I thought the portions were ample. The staff were really friendly and helped to make the whole experience even more enjoyable.
