Great food, friendly service, lovely restaurant...but...a bit too hot. We sat at the back of the restaurant, and could have done with at least a fan to move the air about....the night wasn't very hot, so could be uncomfortable on a warm night. In saying that, it wouldn't put me off going back to enjoy the delicious food.

This review would be much different if it wasn't for the appalling behaviour of our waiter. I'm not sure what his name is but he told us he was Ukrainean. Any questions we had about the dishes were met with sighs, glares, and rude comments. This is a restaurant trying and failing to provide a high class service. When we asked to speak to the manager, our waiter said rudely and aggressively that we could 'speak to him'. We asked was he the manager to which he nodded, but surely he was lying as their is no manager worth their salt who would behave in such an awkward manner to paying customers. Pathethic service, food better than other places we ate but for the bad service it certainly ended up leaving a bad taste in our mouths!

The food was delicious I had piri piri chicken it was spicy the sauce was so hot you had to be cautious not to spoil the flavour . Although there was a mix up when paying the bill & they didn't bring back any change until asked!!!

Excellent food and excellent value for money. Nine of us sat down and througly enjoyed the food and drink. Total bill including drinks was around 25 Euro per head. Menu itself was limited to say 6 choices per course, but plenty of variaty for everyone.

Good food, large portions, staff attentive. Recommend booking to avoid disappointment. We were offered. Free wine with our meal which was a real bonus. The swordfish and sole kebabs were cooked well and came with potatoes, chips and lovely vegetables. Salads were huge only have as a main for four adults we paid 80 euros with 2 courses, and drinks and tip which was well deserved.
