“Not impressed- average food, terrible service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We came here for lunch with our 2 children, not a huge choice of food, but there was something for all of us. When my daughter's meal arrived I spotted 2 insects on the salad, I told the waitress who wasn't really interested. She was surprised that I wanted to change the plate that the insect was crawling on as she seemed satisfied with scraping the salad off. No apology, no " is everything else ok". For the rest of the meal, the staff just chatted to each other at the bar, didn't offer to get more drinks or pay any attention to us. We were appalled by service. The food was ok, nothing special. I'd avoid unless they get new/ properly trained staff.

“Plenty to choose from”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Had a nice meal here and the menu choice was extensive. Most of the wines seemed very expensive but there were also a couple of choices of good wine in the cheaper range.
However the desert was very disappointing - definitely made the wrong choice with the Brulee that was overcooked and adulterated with banana bits.
Meals were nicely presented and the staff were friendly.
Would probably try another place next time.
