“such a disappointing experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

just to re-iterate Natalie H's point about the change from the all u can eat menu. I booked on 29th Dec for Sat 5th Jan but it was only on arrival that we found out that the menu had changed. We debated for several minutes whether to leave as one of the joys of this place is to mull over the various dishes and try something new whether it be king prawns, beef or chorizo in red wine to name 3. Suffice it to say we spent more time scanning the prices ( 2 small chicken wings for £2 was a particular talking point ) rather than the food selection and stuck to what we knew and which we knew would fill us up hence 2 lots of cheesy garlic bread, if we had chosen as in previous visits the price would've been quite a bit more than the all u can eat price. We did manage to keep the final bill to a similar price to the all u can eat but the experience left us flat and certainly not wanting more. Looks like it'll be Mangiamo's, Ocean Palace or the Akash next time we're entertaining.

“Excellent tapas for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Been several times now. Food consistently good. The guys can fill their boots whilst the ladies can pick and choose - everyone leaves satisfied.
