We had dinner with family and kids. Kids food was bad, both carbonara and lasagne was poorly made. Adults had salad, chicken and lamb, French fries were bad, salad average. Drinks ok and staff pleasant, although a little understaffed. We are not coming back.

I have walked past this place over the years and never stopped. Tonight I did, but should have carried on. The wine was OK, probably not cold enough for me. We ordered albondigas to share. They were OK but the tomato sauce tasted like a...More

Ate here on 9th and 17th May 2017. As always, it's a pleasant experience. The chips are excellent, and other food generally fine. Service friendly and efficient. Not fine dining, but certainly worth a visit.
