  • ((*** 18 August 2017 by Karen gardner from St.Ouen

    Service was prompt and friendly however food was below awful.... although 2 of the 3 meals were taken off the bill as the battered cod had deep fryer oil running out of it all over the plate. It had clearly been cooked the 're fried as there was a layer of yellow concealed oil running through the middle of the fish in addition the salad was limp and slimy. The second dish was piri piri chicken and ribs which was basically 3 dry chicken fillets with tomato soup poured over them .. the ribs were clearly microwave then pour sachet of sauce over as little flavour

    Very disappointing. We waited a long time for our main course and when it arrived it was burnt and very poor quality food.

    We were a party of four, sixty plus. Good table, clean and laid up well. The waiter was prompt to come and ask us if we wanted to order any drinks. Orders were taken but we had to wait almost an hour for the food to arrive. Staff were very apologetic, food presented well with good portion size tasty to eat.
