We were here to eat before going to the Theatre Royal as it was so close. Having lived in Plymouth we knew to book in advance which turned out to be the right thing to do as they were turning people away at 6pm. Any restaurant near the theatres will be busy early but once the theatre crowd have gone... More

It was the only restaurant nearby who had tables available on a wet Saturday night. Staff were young and not bright. Food was soggy and tasteless, even the dough-balls lacked any garlic. Drinks are hugely expensive so best ask for water to prevent their scamming ways. Utterly soulless atmosphere, we couldn't wait to leave, But had to correct our bill... More

If you are a group of friends meeting up, this is a place where the staff can cope. We were a group of 18 and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was acceptable - some meals being superb others average. The decor is rather utilitarian but is also clean and reasonably priced. I have no complaints but... More

We booked a table for 16.45, making sure we had time for our meal prior to a show at Plymouth Pavilions. Upon arrival, the restaurant was super busy and people who had not booked were being turned away. We were seated, and our order was taken but there was a very long wait on food and in between courses. It... More

The food, as usual, was good and came out in a timely fashion, however, the service was questionable. We had to ask multiple times to get another bottle of wine and even more times to get more water. As a table of 8, one jug of water was clearly not enough yet it took an entire meal for our server... More

A group of 4 of us came for dinner. The staff were lovely and very helpful. We used an O2 discount code and they remained lovely, even though we didn't pay full price. The food is reasonably priced. Drinks are pricey but you can always get tap water. The food is lovely, I had the pollo pesto pasta and it... More

This was our first visit to the Plymouth PE and it was very disappointing! We booked for 5pm in advance as we had a show to watch at the Pavilion at 7pm. I thought this would be way too early but how wrong I was! By 6:10 we had not received our main courses and by 6:40 we left without... More
