5 of us went to eat on a busy Saturday night. We were told we would have a wait of 30-40 mins so had a drink upstairs while we waited. Fair enough as we had been told in advance. Took about 50 mins to be called to our table. We then sat for another 30 before main meal order was taken. It was nearly an hour before the mains arrived (pizza - 10 mins max to cook!). The table next to us also took an hour. The place was not even full, there were empty tables. One of them was the wrong order so had to be done again anyway. After eating we waited another 40 mins to have the plates cleared, and by then were well past waiting for a dessert course so I went to the counter, paid the bill and we left. If they would only manage the place properly they would turn twice as many covers and earn twice as much from each cover! Crazy. Far too long to wait for poor service and average food.

We ate here two nights in a row. Quirky is the only way to describe this place but the food is exceptional. The setting is different but the atmosphere is wonderful. You would need to book in the busy season but it is well worth it. We will return.

We ate here 9 years ago when we were last on the Island, and tried it again a couple of times this week when we came back. Still as good as ever. Ignore how it looks from the outside which could put people off. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is freshly prepared (you can see the pizzas being made and cooked), the service is very quick, and the food quality is good. Also quite a varied menu. The building is tired and could do with a makeover inside and out, but you really can't fault everything else.
