Recently took my children (young adults) here to celebrate. We all enjoyed the experience of cooking our meats and seafood on the hot stones. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, the atmosphere pleasant and it's good value for money.

The restaurant is a lovely one with a very nice owner. Of course you cook on your own on a hot stone, but the quality of the fish and meat was always good when we were there. The staff was friendly and attentive.

We thought we would try here as sounded like fun and it was. Our children (teenagers) loved it and had the jumbo shrimp. Was concerned about spitting of fat as had read the other reviews but this was not a problem for us. There was lots of smoke from another table but as the waitress explained, they had steak which...

Straight forward food which you cook simply yourself on a hot rock plate. Our 14 year old daughter loved it. Won't go back on this trip as so many places to try but worth going to if you are getting tired of dressing up.

Great relaxed place with good service and good price. Fun to grill your food on a stone grill at your table.

Although this time I had fish on a stone! The family enjoy the theatre of cooking your own food on a hot stone. Good food and friendly staff. Make sure you try the cheesecake!
