Poor quality food. Burger was mediocre, Pizza was like a pancake with topping, soft, not crisp. Coffee was insipid and tasteless. Service poor, and had an air of pretentiousness, for a second rate burger place

You know what to expect with F&Bs and this was no exception. Good food and the usual F&Bs decor and music. Service was good Burger was good and value for money. I'm not sure if it's the first time I've been in to a F&Bs restroom but I was amused by the 'Learn to speak Italian' on the sound system... More

We were just about to order when received a text to say our flight next day was cancelled so had to go to airport immediately to rebook. They kept our table and on our return and enquired how we had got... More

Went on a Saturday evening, it was very loud in there. Hard to talk to others on our table. Food ok, standard F&B. Had to wait a long time to be served the kids desserts, by which time they were too tired to eat them.

Had a meal here last night. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. Nearly all the tables are booths which we prefer. Meal was nice, fair prices and fast service.
