“could have so easily been v much better! :(”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Could have so easily been v much better! :(

service from the waitresses was great but from the kitchen was not - too long a wait for starters [30 mins] and between having eaten that and mains 30+mins

Food was good but not great - well priced but steak was 1/5 gristle and calamari was def overcooked as were the onion rings

Pudding was good & coffees great and atmosphere is very relaxed & good - but late serving!

The shame was that this could so easily have been 4-5 stars with better steak and more care to other dishes - pepes next to us who came in 20 mins after us were served mains first

We WERE given free coffees which was fair & good of them - but would rather have had better kitchen service and cooked food!

“Beautiful food”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Went to Saints on Easter weekend for coffee in the morning & then dinner. The place is a lovely cafe during the day with good coffee, and a restaurant in the evening. Dinner was beautiful, really high standard of cooking & so tasty. Highly recommend.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

On the outside, it looks like just a café - but inside, on selected days, it serves excellent meals at a reasonable rate.
