“worst ever”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

my husband, daughter (5) and i have travelled to this area for a number if years and have never been disapointed with the food or service of the region. it pains me to write a bad review but i feel it is neccessary if this establishment is to improve. when my husband complained about our meals the staff member was rude and asked him if he was a chef. i had to then intervene and suggest that we pay for our starter and drinks before a riot kicked off! the staff member threatened to call the police. in my complete shock at this i asked her if the police could make us a nice dinner as she could not. it all ended very badly. the other customers signalled to us that they were not happy also. to be more exact, the garlic bread almost broke our teeth, the steak was hard like leather and on the plate was 2 baby potatoes covered on oil and some grey cauliflower. the peppered sauce was unappetising as it looked like milk with some mushrooms in.i think this place could improve if the entire staff was replaced especially the lady that thinks verbally attacking the customers is the way to go.

“Lovely friendly place”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Loved it here, staff very attentive, food superb in evening, disappointed in my burger at lunchtime though, but hey I can live with that. The garlic chicken made up for it! House white very good. Staff remembered us and made us feel very welcome.

“Welcoming & Friendly”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We popped into this place for a quick drink in the afternoon before wandering around the rest of the town, there were 4 of us and we opted to sit on the roof/balcony, although it was rather blowy in the wind! We saw the waitress hand some blankets over to a family that had just sat down!

We were served olives, bread and tuna without request, which was pleasant as you don't normally get anything for free these days! The bread was a little stale though.

It was buy one get one free cocktails, but we only had the choice of two (a pink or a blue one!). They were fairly small with lots of ice and I couldn't taste much alcohol in them.

The décor looked good, a little more upbeat and classy than many of the other places in the town so it was inviting. We didn't eat here so I am unfortunately unable to comment on the food.

“Gone downhill”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We visited this shortly after is first opened last year (2013). At that time I would have given it 5* for everything. We went twice - once for lunch and then since it was so good we went back for dinner.

We returned this year (2014) because of that experience and had lunch there. The delivery of the meals was slow and I am sure out of order as later arrivals were served prior to us.

Out of the four lunches the two lunches that were jacket potatoes had to go back to the kitchen as they were - well lukewarm is the most you could say about it.

No real apology - just "it sometimes happens".

Heard it has a small kitchen so maybe that is the reason for the slowness.

“Modern Restaurant with beautiful food and relaxes atmosphere”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We came across this place while searching for somewhere which wasn't just another meal with chips. We are so glad we did. The roof terrace is amazing and later in the evening there were blankets to keep the chill away. Cocktails were 2 for 1 and very tasty. I had salmon which was done to perfection wrapped in a spinach a light cheese tortilla wrap. Unusual but perfection. My husband had cataplana and he was astounded by the amount of fish for the price. Dessert was homemade banoffe pie - so tasty. After eating our meal comfy chairs were arranged downstairs for is to have a drink. The extra service always makes a difference. We had some lovely chocolate wine. A must taste even if a bit unusual. All on all a brilliant night in a modern chilled out environment with well priced tasty food. Would definitely recommend.
