“A bit of a mixed bag !!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

I had previously been to this up market burger bar 4 years ago and had no real complaints. Recently stopped at the hotel next door for a few days and not wanting to trawl down town decided to eat there again. The first night was excellent served by a very nice young lady who was very quick, attentive and the three of us had the meals we ordered and nicely cooked. Repeating the experience the following night we had a young lad who was a bit slow bringing the drinks and managed to mess up two of the three orders but this was remedied without too long a delay. However on the third night we were served by a young lad who was not very quick or attentive and got one of our orders wrong and after taking it away for a few minutes returned with the same dish. Also after paying our bill he omitted to give us the change, obviously deciding he had earned a tip when a service charge was included. So there you have it three consecutive days with very differing standards of service!!
A burger and chips will cost you around £10.00 and a bottled beer about £5.00 so it is not a cheap meal compared to the UK.

“Anniversary Disaster”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We visited this awful place for our parents anniversary. The staff were attentive, but the food was just awful !!! It was cheap as chips so maybe that's why the food was so awful. I or my family would definitely not return EVER !!!

“steak on the grill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

il you like a steak on the grill or other grilled meat, this is OK, but all side dishes are convenience food ; nothing fresh or cooked...
The restaurant to go to if you don't want to have a good french style menu !

“Worse meal of the holiday”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Ate here on THursday evening thinking it would make a nice change from the hotel - what a mistake.

Firstly, we were left standing waiting to be seated for 5 minutes whilst staff were wondering around.

When the drinks arrived they only got one right.

Then the food arrived - well - the salmon was so dry and the burger was tasteless. The salmon had been ordered with rice and it came out with mash potato. When questioned the waitress immediately took both plates away then came back and threw them on the table then the rice followed.

The service was poor, the food was poor, the prices high.

Overall a dreadful experience never to be repeated.
