“Tired and in desperate need of a revamp”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

What started as a cute, funky local restaurant, has aged terribly! The tables and chairs are dirty and worn out, the service is really poor and the quality of food bad. My pet hate.... spelling mistakes on the menu!!!! You've seen the last of me, money better spent elsewhere

“Mothers Day breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Party of 8 pax. Breakfast. Service very prompt and very accommodating as our pax numbers increased. For breakfast a good change to the normal eggs and bacon. Will go back for more. Great valvet cup cakes and good coffee.

“Good consistant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Have never had a bad experience at Dylans. The place is constantly full and the staff are friendly. Great allround menu. We eat here at least once a month!

“Always go back for more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I love popping in at Dylans for breakfast with friends or dinner with family. I have never had a bad meal there (other than the fish, too oily for me) The service is excellent and Dylan is always accommodating and ready to offer things that do not appear on the menu. He always makes a plan.
