“Spoilt by the service!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Was last in this restaurant 10 years ago and then had a memorable meal. This year memorable for another reason. On arriving was asked if we wanted to sit out or in. We stated out and was told that there was two outside. Taking this as two tables we sat at a table laid for four. we were not shown to our table. After 5 minutes we were asked to move to another table of two. We said no as the other table felt as if it was not part of the restarant but part of the pavement. We willingly said we would go inside the building. this was not acceptable to our young waitress who wanted as to move. Grudgingly she let us stay. From then on the service was awful, with lots of delays. the reason we stayed was the good food of ten years ago and again this year the food was very enjoyable. Finally we came to pay by card and after the pin was entered the waitress moved away inside. She came back and said my card would not work. I asked would she try it again and grudgingly did and went off again. she came back saying it was not working. Luckily i had cash on me and paid and went on our way.
Used card for rest of holiday and no problem whatsoever. Obviously tried to get her own back on us for not doing as she said by moving tables. Pity she did not show us to table initially and all would have been well.
so if you like good food and poor service from a young female member of staff then eat here!!

“family restaurant with lots of space”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

We were looking for a resto that would accomodate 6 people without a reservation at 8p on Saturday night -- this place had space after being turned away at several other restaurants. The restaurant has two floors of dining areas and space for large parties in the lower floor. The food was tasty local food, nothing spectacular but in the end it was one of our favorite meals on our trip. Great place to try on a busy night if you don't have a reservation.

“Local, honest food”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Good food, local wines, we had a 3 course menu which we altered without problems. No pretensions and nothing too fancy, they just serve a good meal to both locals and tourists.

“Tasty local food”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

Price was nice, staff really friendly with kids and our pet. Locals go there to have dinner and after eating we understood why.
