The food was not good. Messy service since four different waitresses asked if we were ready to order when we already told the one before we were not.

We actually picked the restaurant with the lowest amount of visitors this busy night, but we liked it very much. My company ordered tapas (mini burger, olives & bread, chickenwings), he thought the food was good, but nothing special (rate 3). I orderd scampi, and the blue mussles in white wine, chilli and garlic saus. The best mussles ive ever tasted! (Rate 5). Nice and friendly waiters and service.

I went for breakfast with my boyfriend, we just couldn't believe how terrible they treat the customers. To begin with, it's a Bit pricey for what they offer, but to make it worse...the servers are clueless about what they are doing and the manager, no doubts, the worst manager I've ever seen (the old short guy with grey hair) Do a favor to your business and get rid of him.

Do not go. The food was so bad. Broccoli was brown, lamb shank chewy, mash potato hard, and the seafood basket was pathetic greasy overcooked and rubbery calamari with about 7 chips. When asked if we wanted desert we all said together NO just the bill. Nearly cried when I saw the packed other restaurants with beautiful seafood etc. Should have known better when there were some people eating outside but was empty inside. Hope this review saves someone from making the same mistake.

Went to hardware lane to find some breakfast and honestly don't know how this place can exist there. Service slow and not attentive, waited to order even tho only had two other tables, had to ask for water when ordered and that took good 10 minutes to arrive. Bacon and egg roll was something you would expect from a servo. Ordered 'rye' toast with avocado, got cheap supermarked wholemeal toast with rubbery avocado. Let the waitress know and asked not having to pay for that and she was good about it, but ended up paying for toast anyway. Drinks didnt arrive til halfway through our meals, coffee was absolutely terrible.
Highly reccomend going to any other cafe. Very overpriced and just ruined our morning.
