This restaurant looks good from the street and I had been waiting for my family to visit for an excuse to go there. When we finally did it was very average. We each got a different meal and no one was thrilled with what they got. I got a pizza which was very thin and soggy. I had to roll up each piece so that I could eat it as it wouldn't hold its form and was uncutable. My dad got veal and my partner the snapper. Both were very small portions and expensive. Won't be going back.

Nice ambience, good service, imaginative food served in realistic portions. A little more expensive than other eateries in town but worth the extra cost

Very nice. Just the two of us and we were greeted warmly even though we hadn't booked. Main servings were enormous and if we went again we would probably share. The sandcrab linguine would have fed both of us easily and it was exceptional.

Food was nothing special. Atmosphere was mall-like and the lighting was bad (LED harsh lighting). Service was mediocre.

Went to this restaurant with a large group of people recently. The waitress we had was fairly uninterested and when we asked for "a mixture of the breads for everyone at the table" we had to do the Maths and spell it out for her. The meals were average considering they're the same price as the nicer restaurants in town. The bruschetta had a stack of cheese on it which ruined it. Pasta was very rich and salty. A friends prawns were so overcooked you actually had to use a knife to saw them in half. Waiters didn't keep our waters topped up either (no bottles on the table to do ourselves). Atmosphere was nice but if you hate the heat and want to sit inside just be aware this is an open restaurant (as are lots in PD). It was a fun night but the quality of service and food didn't justify the prices unfortunately.
