“WELL DONE ZIFF'S”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Friday 6th Dec. lunched with friends, the service was friendly & efficient. The food was delicious and value for money. Because it was not terribly busy the noise factor was not evident. Many thanks to the staff for making this special occasion hassle free. WELL DONE ZIFF"S

“Staff function disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We dined last night as part of a large group. There was obviously too many ppl for the staff to cope with and being the last table, did not even have our order taken when the two hour mark rolled around. By the time we got entrees other tables were dancing. The food was awful at best, two on our table had large beards on their muscles in the seafood chowder, yuk. Then my lamb shank was so tough I couldn't even get the meat off. The pork was dry and steaks were either very over cooked or one man had a piece of raw meat sitting on his plate. Hugely disappointing as this restaurant has been enjoyed by us before.

“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

This was a good choice for a spontaneous lunch outing.The menu choice is varied and the meals were tasty.The staff are always friendly and efficient.There were not as many people in the restaurant on this occasion so the noise was not an issue like it has been before.

“High standards, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Very good service, staff are pleasant and polite. I have been here numerous times without any hassle.
Pick what time you want to dine very carefully as I agree with others that the acoustics are horrible when the restaurant is jam packed with people as every diner tends to start yelling over one another to be heard haha, however when it is not busy the atmosphere is great and enjoyable! Sitting outside is nice on a sunny day although sometimes traffic noise can be a little annoying.
The food is amazing, my favourite dishes are either salmon or lamb etc, perfectly cooked, tastes excellent. The plates are loaded with food, none of this large-plate-dot-of-meat-in-the-middle carry-on, you get what you pay for :)

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Wonderful service from the very pleasant staff - the seafood chowder is to die for and plenty of it. Meals are a good size.
