    The food and setting was excellent as usual, but there was a delay with our main course arriving which was recognised by staff before we said anything, and a round of drinks was removed from the bill, so we felt this was an appropriate response. When the food arrived it was certainly worth waiting for!

    The food was very good, although my red snapper was a bit small for the price paid £19. I did advise we were going with a child and a baby (we were a party of 7) and they accommodated us next to another party of 7 with a baby and a toddler... There were not much room between both parties and it was a bit uncomfortable. They should have thought it through better.

    An excellent meal cooked to perfection. The Fillet steak with accompanying sauce was fabulous. My wife's mackerel starter and salmon main was just right. Atmosphere great and service attentive without being overbearing.

    Dinner for 3....this was my 5th visit in around 6 months. The main courses are always great, and service excellent. However, the last two visits i have noticed the deserts look amazing, but taste less than average. In my party, we had the brownie (very cold/over-chilled, not enjoyable) and the banana bread (absolutely tiny, very poor value for money at £7.50, plus it was cold).

    We found the restaurant a little noisy at times which made it quite difficult to have a conversation with our friends on the same table. We wouldn't let this stop us from returning though, as the food and service was excellent.
