    Very good clean and modern atmosphere. Ex. soup and main course. Nice full bowl of soup with cheese on toast, then very enjoyable shoulder of lamb.

    Table was late on arrival having to wait standing at the door of restaurant. Once seated found out seats next to the bar hanging over our head making a uneasy dinning posture. Holes in the lead windows forcing in smoke from people smoking outside. Found a lot of windows broken in restaurant right next to dinners and also a hazard to children and adults. Food was slow to start if with starters where oily being the calamari and thin more of a thin slice of onion than a slice of calamari. The buscietta was stone cold and burnt on the base then smothered with to much pesto and cheese. Pizza where ok but the hanging chicken kebab lacked taste and potatoes need seasoning The new desserts where fine and service was ok

    Gravadlax starter was very nice, but my sea bass was overcooked to the extent that the skin was so hard it was inedible and the fish was dry. The potatoes were ok, but the green beans had only been blanched and were completely raw. I like my vegetables 'al dente' but these were most definitely raw. I think I should have had pasta or pizza like everyone else and it would have been better! I've eaten there before and even had a couple of large family birthday meals there and never had a problem. Shame.

    Lovely waitress! However they did seem a little understaffed at what appeared to be quite a busy time. We waited a while for service but the food was lovely! Good portions. Just don’t enter it you’re in any type of rush!

    Unfortunately didn't have my favourite dishes and wine (mostly because it's so popular) but our server was so friendly and brilliant

    We had a very enjoyable lunch. The seafood kebabs were extremely well presented and very tasty. It was difficult to choose from the range of tempting desserts but we were happy with our choices of chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce and pistachio and chocolate gelato sundae. It was a warm day so we chose to sit in the courtyard, which we had entirely to ourselves! Service was friendly and timely. The car park was a welcome bonus. We found Zizi's on our Tastecard app and it is not often that we come across a restaurants of this standard that takes Tastecard so we were pleasantly surprised. We will be going back again soon.
