4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Really great place, brilliant food and ambience. I seem to recall it being difficult to get a table as it seemed to be booked well in advance. A must if you enjoy really tasty food and are not too bothered about your waistline.

“Invest in better waitresses”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table for my birthday and 10 people attended.

Food was lovely but came out at different times and so some ended up cold. Waitress forgot some drink orders and some of the food. She was very unorganised.

I'd probably go back but would advise ordering in advance if you're in a big party.

“faulty towers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I had been meaning to go to this restaurant for a very long time. Booked a table for my stepmother for her retirement, really looking forward to it.
Was dissapointed, our welcome wasn't a a friendly warm welcome, we were just told to sit down by a disheveled looking waitress.
We ordered mussels to share, well i could of played ping pong with them they were so rubbery.
Looked at menu, mmmm ok, stepmother had Sea bass which she said was nice but the vegetables she got was tinned carrots and peas, quite disgusting really. I had the Veal which resembled a pork chop, the sauce was the tastiest bit of the meal although it smothered the whole plate, everything is served with rice and plain boiled potatoes, come on......if you are a French restaurant there are hundreds and thousands of ways to cook potatoes. Also, why would a French chef garnish the meals with a limp bit of iceburg lettuce and two fried onion rings which were obviously bought from iceland!!!!!. The service was very poor and i did have to ask twice for a drink and the same glass was used!!. Tablecloths oh dear me, plastic rubber wipeclean................should be linen with a linen serviette.
Had a sneaky look at the dessert trolley, not homemade, you can buy the chocolate fudge cake in cash and carry for a fiver and they were serving it at £3.50 per portion along with the rest. So not a good first visit, but i would go again just to try the steaks that people say are the best.
All in all a Faulty Towers experience, shame as it could be a lot better.

“Wonderful steak meal, I thoroughly recommend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I haven't been here for a few years now but I have to say the steak was just as good as ever. I've read some of the negative comments on here and I think any restaurant in the world would struggle to get 100% positive reviews. Admittedly we went on a week-day and they weren't busy. I certainly didn't see the owner/chef drunk and the service was excellent. Our waitress was charming, attentive without being over-bearing. It's an excellent menu with a good range of choice and to suit most pockets. We had the fillet steaks which at around £18 were good value considering how much you got compared to one of these restaurant/pub chains that serve a thin version that is almost invariably not cooked how you asked it to be. There were cheaper options on the menu at around £10. All in all, absolutely excellent.
