“Bad and slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

I reached to the bistro at 815pm hungry and excited for a hearty meal and the first person to greet me and my friends was a security guard (even gave us menu, clean the table etc. WAITER was no where to be found!). When we were ready to order, we called out to the waiter only to get them ignoring us for a good 20 mins. Now I have waited for more than 1 hour and the food isn't here yet. I wouldn't comme anyone to come here unless you are willing no wait super long for your order to arrive. Kudos to this place though for a good live band but, that's all about I could give this place credit for.

“Poor service ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

I was here was with my family.. The service was terrible. We were received by the guard, seated but no one has came after that.. can to get up to call someone to take out order.. We had very specific orders and none came way.. sizzling chicken came stone cold just the same as the mushroom soup.. when we inform the waitress she told us that the guy who took the order didn't write it down.. so is that my fault?? Some of the food took 45 mins to come and it was cold.. waiters leaving the food on the table and just leave.. when called we were just ignored.. Some dishes were okay but service just horrible.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Good place, nice atmosphere and acceptable price. The only critic we have is that the food was not ordered at the same time. We recommend this place to have dinner and drinks there.

“A Good Option for a Monday Night in Jonkers Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

They managed well with an unexpected group on a Monday night. Food - good, wine selection - good. Live entertainment was a bonus, and they coped very well with a group booking (12+ ) who just walked in. Half had a traditional set meal/menu, half ordered a-la-carte...and even when the orders didn't 'quite' match they delivered the missing meal without hassle or blame - well done!
The food was delicious with good portion sizes, and they managed individual payment without any hassle. Initially service was a bit slow - but overall it was well worth the visit - and good value for money.
