Visited the restaurant for dinner and drinks on a Friday night. The restaurant was very busy but had a great atmosphere. Couldn't believe how professional and efficient the service was with everything else going on. Olivia and her colleague were spot on and completely on...the ball.More

We met family on a Friday evening for a long overdue get-together. The atmosphere was busy because of Uni graduations but we had reserved a table. The staff were so good; smiling, cheerful, helpful and they looked happy to see us. We were so impressed...we did mention this to a staff member and the manager on the night. Nothing was too much trouble. The menu was varied and suited all of us. The food arrives as and when it is cooked but that wasn't a problem for us. It's very reasonably priced and the food was lovely. The only thing to note is that the music was a bit loud (there was a DJ).More

Called to see if there was chance to book a table at short notice. The member of staff informed me they can not give that information out over the phone and to come to the restaurant to see for ourselves. Why she couldn’t say whether...there was a table or not is beyond me. We went anyway. Behold there were no tables for food but plenty for drinks. Possible ploy to get people in for more drinks? Unsure but felt let down as it was just a massive waste of our time. Needless to say we went elsewhere and it has put me off going again.More

We wanted to go out as a family and took ages to choose somewhere to eat. The menu looked like there was something for everyone and there really was. We was a table of 7 and we had an absolutely great time, tons of food...'tapas style but bigger' there wasnt a dish we didn't like and polished off as much as we could. It was lovely and quiet but i hope we brought some fun and cheer to 1842. We had 2 servers, Claudia who made the absolute best Mojito i have ever tasted and we cruise a lot, this is where the best bar tenders seem to be... at sea. I have the worst sense of humour ever and Claudia's colleague Eva was so good and even though she was greek she got ALL MY JOKES to which my family was astounded by. After the meal we retired to a comfy booth and stayed for another hour or so, we just didn't want to leave. If you want something tasty to eat and a great time in great surroundings with fantastic staff, this is the place for you.More
