Group of friends for a post birthday meal. This place has been around for a while but we've put off going. Not sure why. Menu is mix of Mediterranean, Tex Mex and Grill. I think that's why - how can one place deliver all well? Tempted by the cocktails I saw online, had to wait a bit for the drinks... More

I have been numerous times to apatura since it first open and have enjoyed every visit. Their menu is reasonably priced and i think it gives great variety with tex mex and Mediterranean options. Their steak is highly recommended and always comes as requested. Staff are also very attentive and always friendly and helpful. I have been to other restaurants... More

We had planned too eat at a different place and ended up trying here. The menu has a lot of Mexican dishes and since we've been traveling for several months in Europe we yearned for some good Tex-Mex. They had margaritas that were made very good. We had enchiladas and fajitas, very good. About a week later we went again... More

Set menu for Christmas due to size of the party. All starters brilliant, everyone who didn't have turkey thought the main courses were excellent, some that had turkey meal didn't enjoy it - the turkey was in a roll not turkey slices and tasted like a pre packed frozen meal (Iceland specials), all deserts lovely. Service and staff fantastic.

Have never been to this place before but will definitely be going again! We were welcomed warmly and offered menus and drinks, it wasn't very busy but I'm not sure why! We opened with a bottle of prosecco followed swiftly by a mobile or red! We shared the meat sharing platter but added in some halloumi which was no bother,... More
