“Shocking”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My elderly aunt and I went and she ordered cheese on toast. She got a burnt slice of toast with a bit of chess slapped in the centre. At 85 she went to the counter to ask for some more cheese and was questioned although more was slapped on but no offer to melt it on. The male staff member was very rude and unhelpful. Presentation left a lot to be desired. Appalling, never again .

“inedible”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Don't go there if you like your food cooked properly the chips were barely cooked and burgers are a sorry state to add to that the staff are ignorant and are only to quick to take your money then make you wait all day for a poor excuse for food that looks like they've just fished it out of a bin do yourself and your stomach a favour and go elswhere unless you like being served by ignorant rude money grabbing idiots

“Best food in Clacton.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This restaurant should not be missed, from the outside it doesn't look much but the food is great and brilliant value and the staff are friendly and helpful. We went to this restaurant 5 times nothing was too much trouble for the staff the breakfast was amazing value and unlike other places on the set breakfast you could change items at no extra charge. If there was something that wasn't on the menu they were only to happy to make it for you. The portions are excellent size and we just had to keep going back. Throughout our 5 visit we had different meals and not one of them disappointed the kids had burgers which the staff were happy to add different toppings to the same with the baguettes with the fillings and we were never charged any extra than the price on the menu. If you go to Clacton you should definitely give this restaurant a try. Well done to the staff for their food and friendliness. Keep up the good work.

“Great Value Full English Breakfast”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Outside looks like only a kebab take away... hidden through the take away bit is a fantastic restaurant which offered four value breakfasts, with a great menu to choose whatever you fancy for breakfast. I wish we had found this restaurant the night before and we would have definately eaten here, offering mediteranean fare, clean, great staff and most importantly, GREAT VALUE.
