“A little gem !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We visit this restaurant regularly - never disappoints !! The food is cooked fresh to order when they are busy you expect a little wait but its well worth it ! The staff are so friendly - small restaurant but big on taste and friendliness !

“Better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Ended up taking my Dad here for a meal on Christmas Eve after being turned away (rather rudely) from a fully booked Pulcinella's. Definitely glad we gave it a go, it was pretty quiet so I was a bit worried and the outside looks a bit shabby, but the food redeems here. The starters (parma wrapped asparagus & calamari) were delicious and we both picked the same main - a prawn dish named after the restaurant with a creamy tomato sauce and it was very good. We didn't stay for desserts or coffees, but the service was efficient and attentive whilst we were there. Overall, it's worth a shot.

“Little Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have walked past this restaurant on many occasions and never give it a second glance. But over a short period of time it seemed to get busier and busier. Some friends invited us to eat there so we went. Well, the place was packed. The atmosphere was good. Even though it was relatively noisy, conversations weren’t heard between tables. Although the decor is nothing to write home about, the food is. The menu was extensive and varied. All four of us had different starters and mains. No-one moaned other than being too full. The food was nicely presented and the wait times were not too long either. Prices are reasonable too. The hospitality was good and the service was with a smile. Bottom line, would we go again ........ Definite yes.

“good food, slow service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Lovely little restaurant with good atmosphere and nice outdoor area/garden. The food is very nice but the service is very slow. Good for relaxing with friends if youre not in a hurry to eat. Reasonably priced but portions a little small particularly potatoes and vegetables. Have been a few times so even though there are a few drawbacks would still keep going back
