“Excellent food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Was in the area on business and had not eaten all day. The fillet steak which was 10oz was certainly just what I needed the meat was cooked to perfection and I chose the mushroom sauce which complemented the dish and was delicious. The presentation of the food was perfect and it arrived in a timely manner given the beautiful thickness of the steak. There was a good atmosphere with very attentive and pleasant staff who provided excellent service without being in your face. It's never great to eat out alone on business when you usually carry on working on your phone, but I have to say this was an excellent choice of restaurant and a pleasure, and I would highly recommend ! Great value for money too which will keep the bean counter in the office happy. Excellent service atmosphere and food. Well done to all I WILL BE BACK !!

Dear Brian, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review of our restaurant. We always try and make everybody feel welcome, especially guests travelling by themselves, whether on business or for pleasure, as it can be a bit of a lonely experience sometimes. Glad you also enjoyed our food and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best wishes Nicole and Fausto

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Got to share this.. Visit this restaurant!! I went with couple family members - there was a good selection on the specials board. I chose the Scallops for starters, and the 10oz fillet steak for my main - it was to die for!! Will need to go back for more very soon!! Living locally.. I have passed this restaurant several times and it's always busy - and now I understand why!
Thought the ambience was nice and the staff very kind and helpful.
This restaurant is situated on Holloway St in Minehead and the street in general is a really lovely 'vibrant' street with other restaurants, shops, and a great pub - do find it if visiting, just for the record I do not have any business interest on this street - lol!!

“Superb value and taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Just had a few days away after my daughters wedding with my wife , son and grandson and decided to have a meal out on our last night and couldn't have chose a better place than this . Food was delicious , I had a fish pasta dish that if I had the quality of this in some establishments would of cost nearly double the price , most pasta dishes are only 6.50 each and I told the owner you don't charge enough for this quality but she wants good business for the winter period and so that's why they charge such a low price for such quality food , also very friendly and efficient staff , just wished we had discovered this place the first night we were away as would have been here every night .

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our meals were presented like a Picasso work of Art and tasted absolutely delicious. They always say that the first sight is the first bite and this was certainly the case- it tasted as good as it looked. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection and my Sea Bass was complimented by a delicious shrimp sauce.
Recommend to anyone.
