Quaint and smokey due to BBQ. The wine was excellent as was food. I had the salmon special with filo pastry. Lovely presentation and well prepared. The server was excellent. Service slightly slow but we were fine....but if you are in a hurry forget it.

We didn't have a reservation but were greeted in a friendly manner and quickly given a seat. The menu catered well to vegetarian and non likes as well as to the very hungry and not so hungry. Service was pleasant and even amusing. Best French onion soup ever. Excellent duck. Great cheeseboard. A nice special occasion restaurant that's not too... More

Friendly staff, very helpful. We had a dinner reservation for 4 people for 7pm. Arrived early and sat at the bar. We watched them turn away several people while our table waited for us. I would suggest making a reservation in advance as this is a small restaurant. Food was good, steaks were cooked perfectly. I had the vegetarian option... More

Stunning location, okay food, poorly trained waiter with no social graces and the most disgusting dirt I have seen in a restaurant EVER! Had we not been with friends who booked, we would have left. Dirty cutlery, food stained menu's (my husband got up to look for slightly cleaner ones that were just stained, but missing the encrusted food), filthy... More

The food at the Black Tomato was perfection. Flavours, portions and presentation were all bang on. The service was attentive and courteous. My only concern was the condition of the menus. Very dirty and unprofessional. The beverage menu was black and white photo-copies and my starter menu had a footprint on it!

I went with a group of business colleagues twice in a week. The Black Tomato was very busy both times...A good sign. The beer selection was great and some of it had changed during the week, offering variety. The food was well presented and tasty. We were handily offered individual bills, which makes things much less awkward when in a... More

A very warm day demands al fresco dining; we chose the first place we spotted and we're not disappointed with the food and service. Although my husband felt that the gin portion of his g&t was a bit light, all other aspects of out lunch were tasty. A return visit is not ruled out.

Used to be a regular here and went last week for the first time for a few years. The Jambalaya is back - great. It was as spicy and tasty as I remember. Had the french onion soup as well and too much beer - all in all a good night out and I will be back.

We went to The Black Tomato on a business trip and it was a fantastic meal! As appetizers, we shared the chicken curry bites and the prosciutto and blue cheese pastries, which were both excellent. For the main course, our group had the lamb duo, the scallops, the jambalaya and the stuffed chicken breast. All of our selections were absolutely... More
