“Attempted Robbery!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Avoid. Dinner for two, we ordered 2 pizza's and a bottle of wine. All going ok, until the bill arrives. There are 3 pizzas on the bill, along with two portions of bread. When we query this, the manager has no problem removing extra pizza, but the bread portions were a service charge thst must be paid. I can confirm that it wasn't mentioned at any point that there was a mandatory service charge. We ask what this is about and he says the charge was for knives and forks!! He also stated that in England 10% is normal. We told him in no uncertain terms that we expected to be handed a proper bill. If there is a service charge put it on the menu so there is no surprise. We told him that it should at the very least be listed as a charge and not hidden as bread!! He told us he would give us a new bill but that we were no longer welcome in his restaurant!!
Re the 3 pizzas on the bill where we had 2, mistakes will happen and that is no problem, but given the other antics, it pains me to say, I think he was pulling a fast one there too. On the whole an awful experience. Tried to make us feel like the bad guy for asking for a bill that corresponded to what we ate. The big shame- pizza wasn't half bad..

“V.Good food and service”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The staff were great, helpful and efficient. The food was v.good and the ambience good.
Considering its on a main road it is protected and you will not notice. Near the Marina, can't miss it, don't miss it!!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Friendly waiters but food takes rather a while to be brought, fresh and tasty food and nice surroundings. This restaurant has a very varied menu and we have tried both pasta dishes and fish both being fresh and well presented. Reasonably priced for the area. It can get very busy at weekends and fiesta days which means you will have to wait even longer than normal to eat. Only negative was that was not asked if we wanted another drink when food did arrive although our glasses were empty-
