We arrived without booking and were welcomed by friendly staff (Alice)and given a table with a veiw. The drinks order was taken quickly and with help from Alice we placed our food order of a starter and main course each. The food arrived piping hot and very tasty, I'd highly recommend the BBQ Ribs which were cooked to perfection. My... More

Let me start by saying that the chef at this restaurant is undoubtedly talented however they are being let down terribly by the management and waiting staff. On arrival we were not asked if we wanted any drinks but instead glared at as though our presence was a complete Inconvenience to the hostess, who continued this demeanour throughout our visit....

For starters it was a grim entrance to the restaurant up in a tatty old lift. At the top we were greeted by mess, a scruffy looking kitchen and pass and a pair of miserable waitresses. The food was average on the whole but I was unfortunate enough to order a pizza which was sloppy and wet. Yack. When I... More

Obviously very busy with extra tables.However the food was good ,tasty and well presented.We were served very well by a young team of waiters and waitresses who all worked extremely hard that night. Despite the heavy workload they were very pleasant and professional.A credit to this restaurant.

We went here as a group of 7 on a Saturday night. Its at the top of the marina activities building, so it's the only restaurant I have been into which displays the high and low times! The restaurant was quite busy and they were a bit slow on taking our orders, but once they did the food arrived quickly... More

No real atmosphere to the place but Close to the harbour with views over the marina. Access isn't straightforward as if looks like a service door but once inside the welcome is friendly and the food is good. We had an Italian friend with us who declared it 'authentic'. Tasted good and the price was reasonable.

We were a party of 17 who went for dinner for a 50th birthday celebration. We ate from the early bird set menu which was excellent value. The food was delicious and nobody was disappointed. The wine was very reasonably priced and there was a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and accommodated all or requests. Will definitely return.
