“Had to go Back, Excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

My wife and I were looking forward to coming back here. Yes we visited in June last year.
Its still the same ''GREAT'', Yes you have to book, yes it is a bit cramped (but that adds to its charm) Its amazing you seem to be among friends. Plus BYO which helps us OAP's
My wife had to have the seafood with a touch of chillies. I had the Lasagna which was excellent.
The service was very friendly with the 2 girls doing their very best.Nice that the owner comes around to check if everything was OK. Which it was. Came out full and happy.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

In terms of this review less is more. This place was just great in all aspects, as noted in the heading. Clearly very popular, you should book in advance. The place was packed when we were there on a Monday night in March. A wide ranging menu should cover all tastes and everything that our party had was superb.
