Located below Pizza Hut, we decided to give this a try.
The pizza here was even cheaper than at Pizza Hut which surprised us.
And tasty, too...and LARGE! So far, no problems.

Atmosphere: when we came in, the TV was on (VH-1) which was fine, but after 15 minutes, one of the guys wanted to watch football, turned off the sound and put on a very irritating and disturbingly fast-lounge-cd which for us ruined it all.
No smiling welcome, no smiling service, and when we got the check, it took so long for the waitress to come back to our table that I went to the register and payed myself.

This restaurant could get so much more good grades of they started thinking about their clients first...not the food, the food is good.

Have eaten here twice in the past couple of weeks. There is a good atmosphere inside and plenty of room between tables. The food does take some time to arrive - but I would prefer it this way as you can't cook meals from scratch in 10 minutes? Huge pasta portions and decent meat / fish dishes. Pricing seemed reasonable compared to some of the other restaurants in the area.

Prompt, friendly service, a superb meal and reasonable value. I ordered a bottle of local wine which was reasonably priced and very drinkable.

Located under a Pizza Hut

Pros:
-Long bar with stools
-Plentiful seating with tables/chairs, booths and some outdoor seating. I was in a group of five and they accommodated us.
-Clean premises.
-Wide range of food including starters, burgers, salads, pastas, grills, pizzas, platters. Kids menu. There was a 38 minute for our main courses, but I ate roast duck with vegetables and potatoes and was impressed with the size of the portions.
-A wall-mounted TV inside and outside (both showing football during my visit).
-Free WiFi - ask staff for password.

Cons:
-Faces a busy road away from the bay
-No draft lager as taps out of order.
-Wine on table is chargeable
-Single piece of white bread each whilst waiting for main course
-One toilet per gender, plus disabled
-The tables either side of us were not cleared during our stay - understaffed?
-Waitress a little surly - no comments during or after meal

Sorry, but not very impressed. We came in the restaurant late (about 9.30 pm) on a Wednesday night and it was about a third full. Despite this, the food took absolutely ages to come - the main didn't arrive until an hour and a half after we entered the restaurant. Even then, we had to chase it as I am sure they had forgotten about us. When the food did come, it was ordinary at best. Would not return.
