“Brilliant service and food to match”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

A lovely setting with great views from the terrace. The staff were so attentive and helpful, which is great when you have small kids with you. They ensured the kids were kept amused and provided their food as early as they could.

The food was very nice - I'd personally recommend the "3 meats on the stone", and the piri-piri chicken got the thumbs up from my wife and teenage kids.

Well worth a visit.

“Very good but couvert expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Went last night and have to say the food and service was excellent. I had beefsteak portuguese style which was superb, my wife had chicken and mushroom and was equally as good. Just watch the couvert cost as they charge for each item used seperately so does work out expensive. Still very goodand would definately go back.
