“Great atmosphere&great food! Just a little bit expensive...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We went there because of a hostel mate who recommended the place to us. We got to say the clams were fantastic and so was the service! There was some live music too, a guy playing saxophone, who approached to the tables and chatted with customers, helping to create a good atmosphere! Our only problem was that we thought it was a little bit too expensive but we definitely do not regret giving it a try ;)

Pub/restaurant serving very average food at above average prices. Does have entertainment which lightens the atmosphere.

“Decent food, poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Food reasonably good - chicken supreme and liver. However, service was poor, only had to wait 10 mins for the main course but had to wait 30 mins for the bill! Was tempted to walk out! Most senior member of staff not very friendly or helpful.

“GREAT ATMOSPHERE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

There is always a good buzz in this restaurant. Staff are very friendly and their service is excellent. Have been there several times. Steak and fish very good, veg a bit boring but hey you can't have everything.
