“Too noisy & crammed in”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

First & last visit, sorry to say. Saturday evening was really busy when we arrived. We were shown to our table, which quite bizarrely seemed crammed in between two long tables of diners.
We were not shown the Special Board which became apparent when the next table to us were seated. We spent most of the night having waitresses serving to one side (their bodies nearly touching glasses on our table it was that cramped) and people getting up out of their seats on the other side. There wasn't adequate space either side of our table. It also seemed like it was everyone's birthday that night as there were several choruses of Happy Birthday & For He's a Jolly Good Fellow played by a man on his accordion, great at first but deafening when you're trying to actually have a good chat. I agree with a previous reviewer that the acoustics are not good at all - it was very loud.
Food was unfortunately disappointing (Sea bass was soaked in too much oil and the Crab Risotto was quite stodgy)
Sorry Ego's - but after receiving several recommendations to eat at your restaurant, we will not be returning, just not the atmosphere or service we are used to.

“Late lunch”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Mid-week late lunch with our daughter and friends visiting from Spain. Very good food, freshly prepared. Generally good service, and served promptly. Very popular and busy even at 2.30pm. Acoustics are not good as there are no soft furnishings to absorb the sound of people talking loudly, but still a nice atmosphere which is quite uplifting.

“Special deals”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Have a special steak night on a Tuesday and other deals on other nights, all very good value for money on these. Also early diner menu is good if you can make it before 7pm.

“Still delivering the goods”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Yet another spot on visit - ambience, service and food. In fact the best food I've had in all my visits - the hake special was truly delicious, the Eton mess with ginger a stroke of genius and very naughty, decadent Cherry Bakewell cocktails. I still think it's slightly over-priced but the offers even it up.

Please, please, please open a branch in Leeds.

“Great food, very nice decor & excellent service from the staff”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My husband decided to take me here on Thurday for our evening meal. We were greated with a warm friendly smile from Rob and taken to our seats.
We were told about the food on the menus and served with drinks whilst we made our decision.
I was recomended to try the Morocan Lamb kebab if you like that type of food, and my husband had the Surf & Turf kebab.
We were very pleased with our food very tastey indeed. Compliments to the chef. We even knew that it had been marinated in the fridge for 24hrs to obtain the taste. My husbands was the same also. Every thing was tastey,lovely and fresh presented to us by Emma another good staff memeber who has a very warm smile for everone.
I give Egos 100% on food, service and atmosphere
