Decent family restaurant in the mould of Frankie and Bennys or Filling Station American themed diner style. Menu was large but found it to be very lacking in gluten free options.

I visited here while looking for somewhere to eat after a busy day shopping. We walked in and if they had any table for two. The waiter told us we had to wait 15 minutes for a table to come available. I looked around the restaurant with at least 8 tables free. So we decided to wait. When getting shown... More

Not sure if they are on the run down to closing but the service was very slow and the food nowhere near the usual standard. However, the manageress dealt with the comments about overcooked food well and we were not charged for two of the meals. A pity as I have had many good meals there over the years

Right around the corner from the Mal Maison is a nice little Italian restaurant with good food and good service. Nice corner location with plenty of windows. Friendly, helpful service with a welcoming attitude and great suggestions. The food was quite good - overall, I would recommend for both the food and the service...

I hate to think how many meals have had here over the years, but a lot. Very sad that it is closing and I cannot see how becoming a Toni Macaroni could possibly be an improvement. Wife and I rolled up mid Saturday afternoon and were shown to a comfortable table close to the far wall. Drinks arrived promptly, a... More

Been eating here for years and have never been disappointed. I usually come in for the lunch time menu. But I also had a meal here for my 21st and graduation. Sorry to hear this place is closing down. It's one of the best places for a light lunch or a hearty dinner.
