We went for lunch today, with high hopes given the reviews and also a recommendation from a friend. Unfortunately the food was quite a disappointment.
We ended up ordering from the main menu, rather than going for a meal deal. I ordered the shrimp cocktail which was quite small and sat on lettuce past its best. Conversely, my husband ordered the fried brie which was a great portion size and tasted great.
For a main, I had the Crab Pesto on penne. It was very fishy, almost to the point of being inedible and the penne was overcooked (mushy). My husband had the seafood risotto which I'm pretty certain wasn't made with risotto rice. It was effectively rice in a very bland tomato sauce with seafood. It was virtually tasteless.
We won't be back. For the price, it doesn't compare in the slightest - in either atmosphere or food quality - to Davanti's in Whitley Bay where everything I've had there has been rather delightful.
