“Fresh and delicious food beckons”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Place was busy but the owner came out to greet and take our names almost immediately.
Staff are very friendly and it's obvious that there is good rapport between regulars and staff .
Even us first timers were made to feel welcomed.

Reservations are only accepted for parties of more than 10 people.
So do be prepared to wait or if not, choose to go at slightly off peak dining hours .

Food was served in good time.
Produce was very fresh .
Seafood pasta as well as the market fresh fish catch of the day were delicious .

Place does get noisy - works well for a family dining and casual hangout joint but not for a intimate / romantic dine out.

Definitely worth revisiting .

“Always good”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Came here a few times. Always really busy and the food is always really good. The only bad things is they don't take booking except for large tables.

“Still great”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I've been eating and drinking here since the heady 80s. It was great then and is still great now. A superb menu, wine list and the friendliest staff in town, make this a favorite.

“Superb as always”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The place was busy as always. Were greeted by welcoming, friendly staff and had a drink at the bar while waiting around 10 minutes for a table for our group of 6 - you can't book but never had to wait too long for a table. Great menu choices making it difficult to choose. 2 of us had the duck and mushroom rissotto which was devine as was the sticky date pudding. All other meals were equally delicious. A great place for a couple or group, whether you have a platter or full dinner. Great staff and atmosphere

“A tasty treat!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

With the wonderfully friendly staff, delicious food and vast wine selection, Prego is definitely worth spending some time at. Whether it be an after work drink, a family outing or a business meeting - it's the perfect place to gather... And make sure you try their Sticky Date pudding - it's to die for!
