“great barbecue and a great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to the Churrasco night on a Saturday and had a really great evening. The Head Chef, Len, was there keeping an eye on things which is always a good sign. The service was efficient and courteous and table service - which is great for a buffet night. You start by helping yourself to salads and side dishes (the salads were lovely, really good quality fresh ingredients). You then sit at your table and the staff come round with big skewers of meat which they carve at your table. We tried the lamb and beef which were both excellent. There was a band playing which added to the atmosphere - and not too loud so you could converse with your friends.

“Nice food and ambience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Had many meals here and especially liked their green curry chicken, tom yum goong, sausage with ham and sauerkraut, fish & chips, pasta with carbonara sauce and their most delicious sacher
cake. We also tried their pies but found them to be salty.
The ambience was really nice and they showed sports matches on their big and small flat screen TV. Staff were friendly too.

“Deserted, the reason was soon aparent”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I went with a colleague on Sunday around lunchtime, when we arrived we were the only ones there, although later another table was taken. Anyway we both had a starter, the meatballs were passable, the onion rings though were soggy and greasy. The mains were fish and chips, the batter was soggy, the fish gray color and with strong smell, largely not eaten, served with french fries not chips too, the other main was a homemade burger, requested medium rare, it was well done, dry and tasteless again largely untouched. We risked a dessert and went for the banana split thinking they could really not go wrong with that, a mistake the bananas were so so unripe and the ice cream full of crystals. They even managed to get the drinks wrong.

At no time did the waiting staff inquire if everything was OK and even though it was so quiet attracting the service staff was difficult!

No wonder it was not full of customers, we will certainly not be going back!

“Very Enjoyable Bar / Restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

After spending nearly three weeks at the Amari Orchid Resort , suffice to say , we spent quite a lot of time in the Tavern by the sea. Lovely Bar / Restaurant , that serves very good Food and Drinks. Seriously good Hamburgers. I can recommend on experience !
You are not going to get gourmet Food here , but you will get very sound basic , Pub Fayre.
Staff were excellent and the prices quite reasonable for Premises that are attached to a Hotel. Had a great night watching Andy Murray win a Gold Medal in the Olympics on their excellent Big Screen and also enjoyed the beginning of the English Football Season ( Apologies to Liverpool Fans ! ).
If you are in the vicinity , then this place is well-worth a visit. If you are staying at the Amari Orchid Resort , then a visit is a must.
Thanks to all the Staff for providing us with a memorable stay. We will return in 2013 !
