“Whow, what a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We were a group of friends celebrating a birthday and we had a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 deserts. Everything I had was fantastic, from the calamari-starter to the main course - the steak was done to perfection (medium-rare), their wedge potatoes tasty and crisp, the cob which was also ordered by the others were complimented by all and was a decent sized portion. All the deserts looked and tasted devine. Definitely worth a visit.

“L&P”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Wonderful and friendly service from Colin who had taken our reservation and given us a great table by an open window with views over the sea to a thunderstorm in the distance. Lovely food, unusual staters and we both had fresh line fish which was delicious and beautifully presented. Lovely buzz to the place with unobtrusive live music.

“Great location but overrated food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Very nice setting overlooking the water. Food was a big disappointment - fish was overlooked which for a fish restaurant is not acceptable. Waiter was very friendly but not well trained - not his fault but the owners.

“Didnt enjoy it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went through to Lemon Butta in November 2013 and didn't enjoy it unfortunately. The owner was more interested in entertaining his friends who arrived, the manager was great though and did come past us to check if we were ok but the waiter was very new and didn't have a clue! The food wasn't great. Not a great experience
