“Medusa Restaurant, Stevenage”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This restaurant is on the edge of the town centre in Stevenage. The town centre is dead once all the shops close so I can understand why some people find the location 'different'!! However that should not let that put you off......

Go for the food and the service which is excellent. There was a party of 40 in when we visited but we still received prompt service and were well looked after.

i found this restaurant is a bit 'schizophrenic'.. not really sure the type of clientele it was catering for; however given its location you can understand it needs to cater for as wide an audience as possible. That said, our evening was anything but quiet because of the other party. We didn't mind but other customers might..... As we enter the Christmas season I would imagine that this restaurant might be an ideal location for a Christmas 'do' and that should be borne in mind if you want a quiet meal.

I would definitely book again for the food and the service which I cannot fault.Don't be put off, give it a go and decide for yourself!!

“Quiet but good food and service.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant with 5 colleagues and had a very good meal. Had to laugh when we turned up and was asked if we had booked, there was not a single person in the place.

Waiter/manager was very good and gave excellent service, but we were the only customers all the time we were there. The food was very tasty and tasted freshly cooked. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I would recommend this restaurant. The place lacked atmosphere due to the lack of customers, surprised that there were not more customers as the food is reasonably priced and very good.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Fantastic restaurant with lovely food, amazing cocktails and friendly, attentive staff. Have been many times and intend to keep coming back. Yes it is quiet and yes the location is not the best but you should try it anyway!

“Excellent, Quiet and Family Friendly”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Visited the first time after a recommendation from a friend and so glad we did.
The restaurant is hard to find unless you know about it, but is worth the effort to get to.
The service was good and friendly and the food was excellent.
The restaurant was quiet, although it was early mid week.
The second time we visited and the experience was the same, and this time we took our 4 and 2 year old children, and accomodated easily and made to feel welcome.
Only negative was the cost of the car park we used just next to the restaurant (but obviously not the restaurants fault) so would recommend any checks the price before parking

“Weird”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

The food was quite nice but the place is really tacky! Lots of flashing lights! The staff were nice though! It just needs a bit of a revamp to make it look a bit classier! Very odd place! Not a great location either but that's not any fault of the restaurant! Probably wouldn't go back due to the strange surroundings
