Went to this restaurant with a voucher purchased via Amazon. When trying to book at table we were initially informed that it was difficult to provide a table as they were really busy, however, eventually were given a time. On arrival, we found only four other diners and therefore the atmosphere was lacking. The restaurant was very blandly decorated; with white walls broken up by the odd Italian canvas, and the lighting was very bright.
We were given the menus and decided what to order, only to find that one of the starters was not available. It would have been more helpful if this could have been pointed out from the start. The starters were both good and very tasty, although the waiter did try and remove our plates before we had finished eating! We had high expectations for the main course and we decided to pay the extra £5 each for a non-pasta meal. However, truly wished we hadn't, as the salmon selected was not fresh and did not taste very good. The chicken selected by my partner was also not that great. The fresh vegetables were definitely not fresh; I think they were frozen vegetables, and were covered with a very strong cheese. We felt very rushed; as the whole meal only took about 50 minutes despite our best efforts to slow it down. However this was probably a good thing! The coffee was excellent, and probably the best part of our meal.
The restaurant was still only two thirds full by the time we left. Everyone eating seemed to have some kind of voucher, and it does appear that they depend heavily on this kind of inducement to get diners. I am sorry if you feel this is not representative of the normal service, but unfortunately this was our experience on the night.
