“Ordinary”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We have visited this restaurant several times and usually it is spot on. Today's food was not as good as it usually is and hopefully it will be a one off. Staff very friendly and attentive as usual. Good value for money and will give it another go.

“Good value, attentive staff”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This would have had a higher grade, but I was freezing cold and I hate eating in cold restaurants! We had the corner table in the elevated section, and it was too dark as well, but we did have a good view over the restaurant and out to the historic quay, which would be a lovely view in summer. The happy hour menu was good value, and we would go again, but I remembered tastier food the last time we visited, about two years ago. The kids menu was good, they menu was varied, they both enjoyed it, and the restaurant made an effort with presentation. The pasta dishes were both good but my husband was unimpressed with the prawn cocktail. I noticed that those who had chosen vegetables with their main course rather than salad, were having a good size portion of three or more vegetables.

“Great Night - Great Food”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Came here on New Years Eve with my Husband and I've got to say it was an incredible night. The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was electric and the food was delicious.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. They even had a New Years Quiz on and even had waitresses going round tables doing the after eight challenge. It was such a brilliant ending to the year!

Cant wait to visit again!!
