“looks flash but..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

dont come here if you want to buy a big feed. come here for the dining experience.
i have been twice i think. had a blue cheese pasta that was nice. also had smoked salmon on a rosti or something which i felt ripped off when i saw it. i had some tortellinis (or ravioli?) as well that were mostly filled with air and the tiniest bit of filling. never had tortellini like that before.
anyway no point whinging. i knew it was going to be expensive and small portions before i went. the food i ate wasn't bad but i felt that even for this style of food they are being a little stingey. they should either lower there prices or fill there tortellinis more.
atmosphere here is really good actually. similar vibe to what you get in a good restaurant back home. the staff that served me were ok but nothing to rave about.

“Beautifull place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Reading up on some of these reviews is unbelievable. Amy2914 in particular, what are you on girl? Every single thing you said was completely negative and any person reading these will know you're just some sad girl who likes to talk badly about other people. I was in this restaurant a few times last week and everything was to the highest standard. The area, atmosphere, staff and especialy the food was excellent. It is more of a family and couples place which makes the friendly atmosphere more welcoming. The staff are in my eyes very hightly trained and polite, the food was to the best standard on the whole island and the place was gleaming. I would strongly recommend this restaurant for everyone, you will not be dissapointed, it's well worth a look.
