We enjoyed a very nice romantic night with good food and a brilliant bustling atmosphere However.....

The cost of £24.95 is a little on the expensive side for a steak and the chicken my wife had at £18.95 was again a little on the expensive side there was no balance between the meat and sauce you could tell the chicken had been cooked and the sauce just thrown over at the last minute there was no flavour to fuse the two and when paying these prices u expect a taste sensation.

Honestly if you want a pizza or pasta this is the place but if you want fine dining there are so many better restaurants at a fraction of the cost....

The service was quite OK and the food, even though we just had a pizza and salad, was quite good, but the place had no atmosphere.

The owner/manager seemed to be down or bleak and could not raise a smile nor an expression on his face and the same mannerisms were portrayed in most of the other staff.

When you dine out you expect to be welcomed and feel part of the scene.

Hadn't booked and were accommodated straight away.
Very enjoyable meal, food was great, nice choice of wines and friendly, helpful service. Had coffee and liqueur of terrence (under patio heaters) which was very pleasant.
Another plus point was the staff were quite happy for us to take our time over the meal which, given how busy Windermere gets, was a nice touch.

Found this little gem today. Delightful food, olives to die for, fantastics breads, marvellous lasagne, scrummy pizza, far too full for dessert.
Will be on our list to visit again. Don't miss this!
