“Huge and tasty meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Add in great service as well, and you have a winner here.

The food was very, very tasty, and the portions are huge (little warning, the sharer starter almost filled the both of us, it is plenty for 4 people).

Service was great, with each member of staff going that extra step to have a conversation and a laugh with us.

Would highly recommend and visit again if back in Bakewell.

“A last minute choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Following a recommendation by the B&B owner we turned up on a Friday night to be told the restaurant was fully booked, however the friendly waitress found us a table as we were fairly early. There was a good choice of food/prices, the food arrived quickly and was delicious. The waitresses were friendly and attentive, no complaints and we thought good value for money.

“Miles better than it used to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff!!!!! For those who used to go to fellacinis this is the same building but the staff have changed, they dont ignore you, they're not rude and you get served within 20 mins of ordering. I was dreading it bevause i always expect lousy service in here but I was wrong. The service was good and the food was nice. I'll go again.

“Shoddy service ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Great looking place, pretty good food but the service is shocking. Waited an hour for mains (meatballs and a chargrilled steak) while people around us who had arrived well after us got theirs, when I mentioned it we got shrugged off and not even an apology, Won't be back
