We dine at Sambuca Durham restaurant very often, the food is always nice and the staff very friendly. I recommend it to my friends all the time. Either you are looking for a place to eat with your family or you want to book a party with your friends Sambuca is the right place, not to mention the prices, T-bone steak for 18'95 my husband loves it.

Having visited this place three times in the last month, I was shocked at the poor service we received on our last and final visit. Both courses of my food was cold, I had to ask for Parmesan for my pasta and even then it didn't arrive. As a gesture they said I could have a drink on the house, as I was driving, I ordered a soft drink, but I'm still waiting for it to arrive. When I asked for the bill I explained and they agreed to take a drink off the bill. The bills are a mess, make sure u check as they will always over charge you. When waiting to pay the bill we were approached by a very rude women working the bar, she said she needed to add another drink on to the bill, I explained about them taking a drink off but she just scowled at me. Never again.

Went to this restaurant with my partner and another couple.
Turned up for our reservation and it hadn't been noted so we had to wait for half an hour. The staff were friendly and the food was nice but my partner had the Diane sauce and said it tasted funny. This is the 2nd time of visiting and not truly sure if we'll be back again

i was recermended this place by a friend and what a friend it is the best place ive eaten in a long time. Cheap afternoon deals or more expensive. Which ever you choose you will not be dissapointed. The staff are first class and cant do enough for you. They even do a bit entertaining. It is a big place so you can expect a bit noise but nothing to spoil your meal.Dont listen to any bad reportrs try it yourself. My wife and i are regulars now. ENJOY
