“Good restaurant, good prices”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We ate at this restaurant on Sat 25th August whilst staying in Horley before taking our daughter to Gatwick Airport.
The menu is extensive and could probably benefit from being smaller and more focussed on one type of cuisine rather than a mixture of "mediteranean".
We had tapas and my daughter a pizza and the food was lovely, well presented and very tasty - especially the hot avocado.
The service was quick and very pleasant and everywhere was extremely clean.
There was a great atmosphere and we really enjoyed the evening.

“Within walking distance of almost everything; nice pasta”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We ate here two of the four nights we stayed in Horley. My husband ordered the seafood pasta (frutta del mar) both times (!), and I had the vegetarian paella once and the spaghetti Gamborini once. Our meals were generous, and the desserts (creme brulee cheesecake and lattice apple pie a la mode) were well presented and delicious.

As to service, it seems the bar crowd and those seated at the sidewalk and toward the front of the eatery were very well attended to on the Friday evening we first ate there. We had to flag down someone several times to ask a question or add to our orders. The second night we were there, an unexpected party of 15 came in, which threw the few people working (a Sunday night) into a "tizzy". While I felt bad for the servers, we did also feel a bit neglected.

When it's not raining, it would be fun to have lunch outdoors on Massetts Road; however, we liked the indoor atmosphere and the location, near the guesthouses.

“Lovely Tapas Bar”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Really enjoyed a selection of authentic tapas and an outstanding Rioja at Le Gourmet. I was really surprised how good and reasonably priced a local bodega in Horley could be. We went there with some friends and the whole experience was fun with a lovely Spanish atmosphere.
