Intimate atmosphere, good service and above all excellent food. Can’t rate it highly enough, it deserves all of its plaudits, I wish the owner would open a restaurant by us in Devon!

Visited this restaurant with my wife for dinner. Warm welcome from the receptionist who took us upstairs to our table. Lovely views out over the river and water meadows as the sun went down. Clean minimalist style decoration in the restaurant. We just ordered main...courses and while we were waiting were given a board of complimentary breads and butters. I enjoyed the chicken saltimbocca and my wife had the prawn linguine which she said was beautifully cooked. When we asked for the bill we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was reduced by £10 per head as part of a promotion for diners on Wednesday evenings.More

Had the seafood linguine but be aware if you like seafood I would not advise as it was over powered by the chilli sauce waiting staff seemed in experienced

Istvan and Jess were our hosts, just the right amount of assistance thruout or visit. A modest but well decorated room. Could have had anything on the menu it all looked so enticing. The Calamari and Crispy mozzalera were fantastic and a little substantial but...tasted fantastic. Main course was Seafood linguine, amazing, and the Procheto spicy pizza were simply the best we have had for some time, and not small !!!! Altogether a modestly priced fantastic experience, highly recommended by Jilly and I.More

The proprietor is a larger than life character, who offers a very warm and friendly welcome and the staff, too, offer an efficient and friendly service. The meal we had was quite excellent and, on Wednesday evenings there is a generous discount, so a reasonably...priced meal turned into a very cheap one. I could not recommend it more highly.More

The atmosphere was fabulous. Calm and lovely. The salmon starter was yummy but my steak was the best I’ve ever eaten! Looked huge but I managed it all. Didn’t know steak could actually melt in your mouth. It was delicious! Hubby had the seafood linguine...which he said was very lovely too but beware, it’s quite ‘chilli-fied’. Hubby said the ice - cream was nice (I was full by now!) All in all, it was a very nice evening out and the food and drink could not be faulted!More

We had an excellent meal this evening and were sat upstairs with a lovely view of the quay and river. My friends and I were served by Ellie, who was brilliant and extremely patient when it took us a while to decide between the various...dishes on offer. In the end, we chose 3 pasta dishes, all of which were delicious.More
