“Complete disaster”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

So what to say about Gardens, after a lot of fuss around town we decided to visit and were sorry that we did so.The portions were huge but the quality was way off so if you`re really hungry and don`t care what you`re eating I would recommend this restaurant. Well on the other hand maybe not, the service was a complete disaster.Yes the terrace was full but the behaviour of the waiters was unbearable but as we allready ordered we stayed. So, the day was windy and at one moment at a table next to us the table cloth blew off to the floor and we looked at it for about 10-15 minutes. The staff passed over it for about 5 times not noticing it, eventually after some time a guest picked it up and gave it to the waiter who put it back on the table!!! This was when the terrace was full of customers, I don`t want to even think what they are doing when the guests are not around. The staff was pleasant only at the time they brought the check that was the only smile we got in the whole evening, I really wouldn`t recommend anyone this restaurant for the same money you can eat better within the same price range without pompose staff and so much fuss of something that mediocrate.

“Best Steak Anywhere”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

The service was perfect. Good fresh bread with 2 different butter spreads. The most tender flavorful steak I've had in ages served with a light cream Gorganzola sauce. Not too overwhelming for the tasty beefsteak. Air-conditioned inside dining or outside in a covered street-side setting.
