“Two meals and I would have gone back for three!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

I was staying in the area for two nights and thought I'd try a couple of different restaurants.

On the first night the restaurant was convenient because it was walking distance. Staff were polite and efficient, and even though I was eating alone and was among tables with larger groups I was given very good service.

The meals were very nice and came out in good time. I left satisfied, so much so that the next night I was more than happy to return try something else on the menu. I wasn't disappointed.

Recommended if you are in the area.

“Frustrating....”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Food was ok when the right dish eventually arrived
The cream on the cake was the 10% surcharge on the credit card. Challenged the snotty little gen Y waiter who so did not give a crap - was basically told "we'll that is how it is - that's the rules".
No warning, no notice just a huge add on to the bill. No manager on duty to discuss.....
Eyes open before you order!

“Could have been better!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant is lovely, great ambience, and is reasonably priced! Food average, actually disappointed! Tapas lacked flavour and desert was really disappointing. Service was great! I would really like this restaurant to do well but unfortunately food was below expectation.

“Excellent Mid Week Menu”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

After coming to this restaurant for the past five years the changes they have made recently are fantastic. The menu they have available from Monday-Wednesday is great, not too pricey and good selection. Probably one of the best chicken Parma i have had, not too big and not too small, chicken wasn't thrown on top of the chips...(Ya no soggy chips)
The other two guests i was with had pasta and found it fantastic.

After reading the menu i now want to try the Tapas they have available...

Can't wait to come back...

Just hope the local residences of Sanctuary Lakes gets behind this gem.
