“Highly Recommend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Had dinner at this restaurant and it was great! Starters piping hot and the mains very good the salmon was huge and very fresh and the calzone was thoroughly enjoyed by hubby and daughter! The white wine was very refreshing can't comment on the puds as we were too full by the time starters and mains were had but they looked good coming out of the kitchen. Not the fastest of service but wasn't an issue as the atmosphere was so good

“Great food, excellent service, reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We have tried a few similar restaurants in the surrounding area and found this one to be the best. The food was really really nice, the service was quick, efficient and very friendly and the price was very reasonable - 3 starters (plus garlic bread) 3 mains and drinks €74. Very happy and would visit again if we weren't going home tomorrow.

“July 2014 visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Watch out for the draft beer. Super Bock draft glass had sediments floating and residual on bottom of glass. When I queried this, the answer that this was normal---not acceptable. I had a glass of same down the street later and no sediment!
The staff were pleasant but could do with some training in customer relations.

“Had a shocker!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Sorry guys you had a nightmare! We'll put it down to a bad day at the office and to be fair they didn't charge us for our mains after complaining.
2 guys thrusted leaflets at us on entering the square with the promise of a free drink! (Not why we went-we just fancied an Italian).
Didn't start well when I had to go and ask for menus after 10 mins but after having starters a mere 55 mins passed before enough was enough-when asked as to the whereabouts of our mains the look of shock on the waiters face told us we'd been forgotten about. I could picture the scene in the kitchens-quick get that food in the microwave!! A red hot on the outside and cold in the middle lasagne arrived 10 minutes later accompanied by a less than crispy pizza, we did our best to make the best of a bad scenario but it really was bad!!
We had a chat with the lovely waitress who admitted a staff shortage and the manager came over with apologies so credit to them for that.
They've earned some good reviews on here so benefit of the doubt could be given.
Do yourselves a favour - don't bother with the leaflet men around the corner-they'd be better used for staff shortages! Which reminds me, we never did get that free drink.

Dear Glenn thank for your review even there is nothing positive to cheer its a fact that some nights due to the way costumers arrive at the restaurant we struggle and stretch to a limit that in some case crosses the line of acceptance I can only apologize to you for not given the attention that we do to 98% of our costumer I've inquirer with the staff and apparently one of the tout must forgot to tell a waiter upon your arrival which explains due to be busy you dint get the menus in time after that went down Hill wend the waiter who took the order got distracted with other orders and as a human not only he forgot to enter your order we also forgot to enter one lasagna and finally wend someone notice add pass 30 minutes the reason u waited 55 minutes was exactly this is not your fault is one of those things that some time happens and as much as I try to prevented there are days wend we all have a bad day in the office in this case u was the victim the only thing I can say in my difference is we serve 1000.s of clients on the summer season and we try to give the freshest food we can provide most of our clients return at least once during holiday with so much competition around I can truly say I'm proud of the food and services which you unfortunately dint have it I hope if u come across us again gives a try we will try to at least compensate your ordeal with a proper verita food and service
