Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. I don't think you could get a better steak in Eastbourne.

Lighting is very subdued, and cosy would describe the space for dining. The food was amazing. Took time to deliver as we arrived just after opening. Very tasty, and large portions. We will visit again but without the bickering children. Well recommended for a quality meal at a good price.

Another fantastic visit to this outstanding low key happy restaurant. The décor is American Diner style, and is homely. Angie, the proprietress, is always so welcoming even though we only visit a couple of times a year. The food is just wonderful, and always has been. I've been visiting this place for 25 years or so I guess. Huge portion... More

Booked a table and arrived 5 minutes early - no one came to greet us at the entrance and we ended up having to walk all the way down to the bar area to one young girl who looked at us very grumpily and just said "have you booked?" I don't think she was pleased to hear that we had... More

I apologise for the delays you experienced, we were short staffed on the day you visited and were unable to deliver our usual high standard of service, we do have procedures in place to cover when staff are absent, however, on occasion this can mean there are delays with our service. We pride our self on being a local, family... More

We had to eat at 6.30pm as this place was fully booked. Traditional Tex Mex, large portion sizes. The decor is quirky and fun.
