“Hard to say”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Found this place while staying in South Bank for the one night. Had to steal our water from another table, waited for ages to have someone take our drink order. The lady who appeared to be in charge did apologise though. Meals were great we ordered three entress to share- the kilpatrick oysters, the cold bugs and the scallops with a mornay. We waited for ages for our plates to be cleared but no one came so we got up and paid. Beautiful location and nice venue, for the price you are paying the service should have been 10/10 it was more like 5/10. It was a Sunday night and not very busy so a bit disappointing.

“Worst Restuarant EVER!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I have never experienced such a poor excuse for a restuarant in my life. From the moment we walked in until 3hrs later when we walked out still hungry, we were disappointed by everthing. We were not offered drinks until we called a waiter over who had a personality of a 4 day old piece of road kill. After finally ordering we waited 1 hour for bruscetta that was obviously straight out of a can then another hour for the mains to arrive. You would think an apoligy for the wait but no, in return STONE COLD MEALS!! I could not believe it, the meals were unable to be eaten. Upon complaining to the manager who made us feel like this was somehow our fault, she offered to "go and put the meals in the microwave!!!" Finally, upon paying the bill, we were argued with, by the manager, who demanded we pay for the cold meals. I have never been so offended by an over priced, poorly run establishment whose owner obviously has very poor skills in hiring managers, waiting staff and chefs.

“Terrible staff, stone cold meals served at the pace of a turtle with two broken back legs!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

The staff are going to run this restaurant into the ground! The service is terrible and staff have to be prompted for any sort of attention re: refill water, drinks, where are the meals?? This is the first time I have ever been so annoyed that I have written a review. Entree's took an hour to come out and the mains a further 1:45mins to come out! Four out of six meals came out very, very cold and no longer fit for human consumption! The bruschetta entree might as well been a pizza on garlic bread... don't know what they were attempting there? The staff all stood around and neglected their tables. Many people complained and we watched a group so feed up that they left after being seated for 20mins without any attention! This ruined evening experience was not cheap either. If you are the owner reading this then either re-hire all new staff with the proper training or sell now before financial ruin.

“Best service in a long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

A group dinner was met with absolutely spectacular service. The portions were humongous and tasty. There were absolutely no complaints. Service with a smile. Customers with more smiles. Thanks to the owner/manager for the personal touches.

“A very nice meal in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had eaten here several years ago and found it wasn't much better than your typical pub grub, but this time around it was much better. We had a Sunday lunch and everyone was very happy with their meals, I thought my seafood plate was excellent, you could taste that it was good quality seafood as the prawns, scallops and salmon all were beautiful, rather than the blandness of long frozen ingredients. The wait staff were also excellent, unobtrusive and friendly. It was a little overpriced, but we all enjoyed it.
