Having wandered round the Xmas market, we deceide on Papa Joe's for a dinner.

Atmosphere and decor was cool and convivial.

Personnel were efficient, professional and fun.

Spicy chicken wings with fries were great. The hot desperado baked potato was impressive too.

Would definitely return when in the surrounds.

Having gone to the XMas market we decided to go have a bite to eat. It was early so we were seated right away. Got something to drink and then for eats decided on their honey ribs and hamburger. The presentation is nice but there it stops. The hamburger was no better then the steamrolled piece of meat you get at McDonalds and very well done. Asked for medium but later was told they don't know how to do this, just for steaks. (I'd fire the cook). The ribs were eatable, did fall off the bone but really did not taste like much. Then to top it off the computer thingy-ma-jig to pay didn't work for quite some time which was frustrating. The waitress was the only good thing about the visit, efficient and polite even though she got a little embarrassed at the end. I must add, this is not a once off. We've gone back every now and then to see if it got better, but I won't find out in the future because I'm definitely going back again.

the service was terrible, not that they forget the half I ordered they were at the same time really unfriendly. I was there often and the food is really not special even mc Donald can reach them. at the same time its really expensive. the only little plus is the decoration.
