This is absolutely the loveliest little family run restaurant. It's just the friendliest place. Food always been scrummy! Has the best Gary Barlow tribute every now and then- Dan Hadfield. Well worth a visit... can't wait for the next xx

We visited "just for a coffee"! Were greeted by very pleasant waitress who assured us coffee only wasn't a problem. And what lovely coffees they were. Beautifully served accompanied by two amaretto biscuits. By this time we had glanced through the menu & decided to have dessert! Certainly not to be missed - best chocolate fudge cake I have eaten.... More

We went following a movie at Vue. The food was fine - I had the pizza which was nice, albeit rather well-done. Service very average - young staff members who seemed very distracted throughout the service and more interested in chatting among themselves than serving customers.

Thank you for your review. We do pride ourselves on our happy and friendly environment - naturally this does spill over to within team 'banter' - but this should never be at the expense of the customers needs, so thank you for your feedback, the team appreciate it. More

We waited over a hour for our main courses and gave up and got popcorn at the cinema!!! Staff totally disinterested, 20 mins for an initial drink, the starter was worse than I would throw together at home! We have had hit and miss meals here before but thought a quick meal within 45 mins would be achievable but this... More

Oh wow, very sorry you felt like that, you certainly didn't reveal your disappointment nor tell us you had a cinema ticket booked? As you could see we had an incredibly busy Saturday evening - with a very large party who had actually booked, and arrived before you, but maybe if you had talked to me l could have sorted... More

Description
Family run restaurant serving Italian food in addition to Burgers, Steaks, Fish etc. Our restaurant has been on Ocean Plaza for over twelve years, and we pride ourselves on being able to compete with the 'big boys' on this Branded-Commercial Leisure Site. Obviously sometimes this can bring it's issues - such as customers expecting fast food - we can never compete with the brands on speed as our food is not pre-packaged and frozen! Ocean Plaza offers free parking for customers and is home to an impressive multi-screen Vue Cinema, a 20 Lane Bowling Alley with Laser experience, a DW state of the art Fitness Club and a 95 bedroom Premier Travel Inn - which faces our restaurant.
