    Another good meal prior to going to a show at Oxford New Theatre but you need to book cos very busy. Mushroom starter yummy and dessert shots a must.

    A good choice of food. The dishes we had we very good. Sadly we had to wait half an hour for our desserts, which arrived long after we finished our coffee.

    Very dissapointing experience. Have visited the restaurant many times over recent years with my grandchildren and it had been a favourite venue. But no more. My 9 year old granddaughter ordered the vegetable sticks and dip to start - there was only cucumber and the sticks were far too large and chunky. The worst thing was as my daughter and two grandchildren were being given there mains I was told my order was unavailable as the chef had run out of salmon. I was not happy as should have been told when order was placed. Apparently there was a new chef and he had not told waiters there was no salmon. So I had to reorder and sit and wait whilst the rest of the family ate their meal. To be fair the Manager came and apologised and I was not charged for my meal and glass of wine. Also there was no colouring sheet, something that has kept the children occupied in the past. However, I do wish to mention the waiter (think he is Spanish) was very good and apologetic. Would I recommend the restaurant, no not as things are at the moment.

    Space wise we were a little cramped. The food was very tasty, but the Italian Fizz was on the warm side although waiter got us an ice bucket which helped, but we had already poured 2 glasses. There was nowhere to hang our coats but the waiter helpfully got us a chair to put them on. The atmosphere was good as was the service.
