I really enjoy F&B's, especially the variety of food on the menu Usually the restaurants are noisy, sometimes too noisy, but I put up with it to a point. This particular restaurant, tends to be a little quieter than others that's why we keep coming back, always good food, pleasant staff, and good atmosphere. This last visit I think was... More

Three girls had pizza which left them all very sick after! We are all from different areas and schools so it wasn't just a bug.......we had met in Cardiff at a gymnastic competition. The girls could only eat half the pizza as it didn't taste nice - we complained and had them for free, but after they were all sick... More

Me and my partner came here on a date and it was really nice. The staff where friendly and helpful, we didn't have to wait long for our food and the food itself was really good. The restaurant itself was clean and tidy. Would go back.

Free parking. Husband had meatballs and spaghetti which were very tasty and served with bread sticks. I had chicken and prawn alfredo which had a nice sauce (let's face it... pasta has no taste...) but not many prawns or chicken. Got bored halfway through, ate the meat and left most of the pasta. I think for that price it should... More

Booked ahead of time. Arrived early and it was pretty quiet for a Sunday lunch time. Ordered two burgers and two unlimited refills of latte. First latte arrived before the meal and was hot, meal arrived after about 20 mins or so. It was ok, burger well cooked and pretty thick, as a result it was not juicy. The coleslaw... More
