“Best Risotto in town!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Yes, I tried it and it is true. The seafood risotto is just great! Great ambience, nice fireplace for the cold and rainy days. Service is good, very good food selection. Will go back!

“Wow!! Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Will definitely recommend and visit again! I had the mussels to start with and then had the sundried chicken which was fabulous! Had a great bottle of wine and the prices were very reasonable. You have to try this place! you won't be disappointed! Kasia Hala from Poland

“Great Moules”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We booked for 7 for lunch on Saturday 9th March; my husband and I had previously eaten here just before Christmas and enjoyed it enough to make the one hour's drive worthwhile. All seven of us enjoyed our special prawn salad or prawn tempura starters, we followed with 4 moules, 1 cob 1 chicken liver and 1 special pork belly and spinach pie. This was all washed down with sparkling win and wine. We all had room for a dessert - creme brulee was excellent. Our experience was even better than our first visit and we will be back!

“A perfect Valentine”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I had the pleasure of dining at 'Eat' on Valentines night; I opted for the special menu for the evening which was perfectly proportioned, divinely prepared and fantastic value; each course came with a glass of wine paired beautifully with its dish.
The presentation is clearly carefully considered with unusual boards and plates for each course or side dish making the whole experience of eating out more special.
The staff are always lovely and full of personality, the ambience is relaxed and stylish and the food is just exquisite whether you have a delicate seafood risotto or a juicy steak; you won't be disappointed but you will want a bite of what's on your partners plate!
