“Food average - convenient location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food is average, the free wi-fi, I think the main attraction. The service average too. Not bad not good either. Then again this is Gibraltar and you cannot expect exceptional restaurants. It seems everything is important from the UK. We are so spoilt for choice in Spain, France and Italy. No matter. We enjoy our meals there, while surfing the internet. This restaurant is not too expensive, so all in all. Good value for money.

“Sunday lunch was alright”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Came here for the sunday lunch, which was £12.50. I was the only one on the table that had it, everyone else had what was on the menu. Lunch for everyone was ok. No complaints really, however im not incredibly motivated to come again soon as there are other places id like to try. So an alright experience overall, but not anything to rave about.

“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Had a lovely meal with friends over Christmas. The service was great and the food was very good, as it always is. I had a lovely prawn au gratin to start with followed by a seafood risotto which was delicious. Always good!

“As Good As 2011”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We ate at the restaurant several times over the festive period and we were never disappointed. We had not been to Gib for two yaers and I must say that the standards had not dropped, perhaps even better.

I contacted the restaurant by email before we left the UK to reserve a table for the night after boxing day. My email was answered swiftly and on our arrival at the restaurant we were shown to our table. So good was the service and the food that we reserved a table for the other four nights and we also had lunch there twice.

The guy who runs the place is called Andrew and he is a really nice chap. Nothing is to much trouble and although he was in Madrid for three days over Christmas as soon as he was back on the Saturday evening he came straight over to our table shook hands etc and welcomed us all back. He even apologised for the fact that he had not been there when we ate there on our first night.

A special mention to a young lady called Petra. She was our waitress every night and she was outstanding. Helped us choose wine, gave advice on various meals or dishes and even brought things for us to try if we were not sure what they tasted like. I must say that all of the staff are greabut Petra stood out.
