We ate here recently pre-theatre. A friendly welcome and a traditional style to the restaurant were a good start for us. I liked the immaculately laid tables with spotless white tablecloths and napkins. The menu is extensive with several specials and excellent fish and seafood...More

Staff were good,although almost all the servers appeared to be Polish Food was very average and not as described on the menu. The lobster turned out to be langoustine and the beef medallions a rather tough steak.

We went for our wedding anniversary, and it was fabulous. Authentic italian menu, cooked to perfection. Great cocktail selection and wine list, all at a very reasonable price for the quality. We will be returning

Seated in a pleasant courtyard. Food excellent, wife had lobster tail and tiger prawn risotto - delicious. I had Halibutt - delicious. Starters, mains, deserts and coffee all excellent. Service very good and friendly. Would recommend this to anybody, well worth a visit.

I had a Pre theatre three course meal. Good selection to choose from for each course. Each course was nicely presented with great flavours. Good sized portions, best side salad I've had in a long time and attentive staff. I'll be back..

We reserved a table for a very early evening meal even before the pre-theatre revellers so naturally the atmosphere was thin. The piped music, paper napkins and decor gave the place a distinct '80s feel - but all of that was forgiven by the promise...More

The early prix fixe menu is very good value, with 2 or 3 course options. Portions were just right. Both the baked fish and the panko crusted chicken were cooked to perfection. A thoroughly enjoyable evening meal.
