There are many good Restaurants in balloch - i don't tell that this is one of them. The waitress was not really likeable and the food was greasy.

Went here for lunch, good value for money. Starters looked really appetising bruschetta and soup - soup was delicious and my family enjoyed theirs also. Mains were good however pizza was a bit too much. Nice surroundings, clean toilets however the fabric chairs look as though they need a good clean. Staff polite and attentive.

The food here is a limited menu but what you eat is beautifully cooked and really tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We went just after bank holiday so was very quiet, but I would imagine it is busier at other times. Really enjoyed thanks!

Five of us had dinner here and the food was quite good. It has recently expanded and now offers reasonable Italian food with some nice Italian wine. The prices are a bit higher than expected, and the ambience is lacking any warmth.

Soggy pasta and cheddar topped pizza is not what I was expecting. Otherwise a nice atmosphere but poor attention to detail. Sadly I won't be back.

Hi Domda64, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant which unfortunately was "not quite up to scratch". We take all comments onboard so that we can strive to continue to be Number 1 and improve in the areas that we fall short on. I am guessing that you were not given a check back on your food... More

I booked this restaurant after reading the good reviews. I was take aback when I arrived as I had anticipated a cosy traditional restaurant but saw a cafe style eatery. The restaurant was busy and noisy, with many family tables with children. Luckily, when the food arrived my reservations disappeared. The breaded mozzarella sticks were delicious. The sea bass was...

We frequently visit family in Balloch but this is the first time we have been to this restaurant and certainly won't be the last. We booked earlier in the day and were pleased to get a reservation as it was a very busy bank holiday. The restaurant has been recently refurbished and has a nice fresh look. The staff on... More
