After having visited the restaurant a few times and enjoyed the food served, our experience on Sunday late afternoon was very disappointing. We wanted something lite and decided on two starter dishes. The salmon cakes were very salty and the mussel dish was draped with an awful dark sauce suspected to be a meat gravy. We had to wait 20...

This place started off OK a few years ago, but it is on the way out. The owners/management are already in a "cost saving" mode. They have shrunk the floor space, reduced the number of tables and staff, and implemented other cost cutting measures such as smaller portions. My wife and I had dinner there last week. The service was... More

Best calamari (fried) I had in quite a while. Hake was good too, and a very reasonable portion(I ordered the large size). The service was very professional and efficient and the ambience quite acceptable. Prices are reasonable, the special offers are very good value for money. Worth visiting again.

We went there for a family dinner and it was not the first time we visited this restaurant. We have had some expensive dinners before but you could justify the price tag that came with it. In my opinion you cannot justify the price of their food because it is average. The new layout is fresh but with no value... More

This restaurant is located at Lynwood Bridge close to the City Lodge. Service is fast and food is ok... but it definitely has more of a cafe feel.... All a bit basic. Fish dishes were good and served well. One colleague had a very tough steak.... but then it does not advertise as a steak restaurant. Visit for quick convenient... More
