The menu selection is great. The atmosphere is always good with a mix of people and families. It is very relaxing. The staff are amenable and efficient. It is also very clean

The food was delicious - we all enjoyed our main courses. I had the coconut chicken for a change - it was a little lacking in temperature, but the spiciness made up for that). My niece enjoyed her cocktail, and the Malbec I had was very good. My nephew particularly enjoyed the brownie banana dessert - and my chilli choc fondant wasn't half bad either ;-) . The waiter was attentive but not overbearing - just right (sorry, didn't get his name).

We had a lovely night from start to finish, we were greeted by by a lovely young man, called Mathew, and he carried on looking after us all through our meal. The food was absolutely delicious, eps the mango cod. Our waiter Mathew even brought out a lovely little dessert with a candle on, as we were celebrating our sons birthday. We will definitely return, it's got a lovely warm atmosphere xxx

This was the second time we have been to the restaurant. Our first experience was less than great. This visit was a different experience. The service was very good. We both felt though that it's very pricey considering the food. Two mains were over £30. An average overall price for a meal for 2 is approx £70 including drinks. Still if the price isn't too much and as long as the service levels remain high then you should enjoy it.
