I was interrupted while talking to my wife by service to ask if I was finished with my plate. My table was neglected and I actually had to yell at service walking by to come to my table. I tried to pay with credit card and they accepted the card from my hand, went to the back for 5 minutes... More

Nice setting. Good food good price. Closed by 9.30. So too early for us. Have to get there by 7 to have a relaxed meal with a dessert. We wanted desert but only ice cream was offered as it was 9pm. We would of had coffee and another drink but they make it clear they are closing.

This was no doubt the best restaurant in the area in terms of food quality, taste and athmosphere. Also their fruit shakes/smoothies were really good compared to other places that we tried.

Probably one of the best settings of all the restaurants we went to with a very Thai feel to it. In the ‘garden’ there are several self-contained seats and in the evening the lighting is just perfect. The food was delicious, as it was last time we were here on holiday, and as it was we had the same meals... More

Called in for a late lunch. Despite being the only ones in they couldn't have been nicer, very friendly. Good value for money. Would recommend.

We recently visited John's garden as it is local to our hotel. We were sat in one of the little huts which is very nice and private. Both food and drinks were lovely, highly recommend visiting here. Peaceful garden, nice staff and great food.
