    Lovely restaurant, have used before when visiting Jersey.
    Food excellent, well cooked. Great range of dishes

    I would recommend the restaurant for dining or drinks before or after a film. My prawn starter was delicious but the tuna was overcooked. The seats are truly dreadful. The plastic cushions that have been added to raise the diner to reasonable table height feel like incontinence cushions. They are cold and we had trouble stopping ourselves from sliding down. In fact a smaller friend of mine nearly disappeared under the table. Also being bucket seats there is nowhere to hang your coat and no coat rack elsewhere we were told so we unhappily had to put them on the floor!

    Very good value. We had one starter between us and the main was lovely; I had steak, my friend had Bream - both v. satisfied. I had the pancakes with cream and coulis for my dessert (my friend, likewise); both very happy. Staff very helpful, friendly and attentive. Was going to move after, so timing was excellent and service efficient without being rushed. Altogether very happy - must go more often! Also able to use Cineworld discount card, which knocked a few quid off the bill. £35 for two was v. reasonable, I thought.

    Lovely food from the a la carte menu. Didn't find the food on offer on the tennerfest menu interesting. The staff were excellent as usual especially Marius.

    Loved having my lunch there the problem was the service was a bit slow, we ordered our starters and only got them 20 min later and when we asked for the bill the guy didn't bring it straight away so we had to ask another member of staff. Which she complied beautifully.
