Went for a family lunch on bank holiday Monday, all seemed fine got a table no bother and ordered food. Waited 45 minutes for starters (garlic mushrooms and a portion of potato skins) which I thought were ok considering the price the time waited was ridiculous!! Then waited a further 40-45 minutes for our mains, this is quite a long... More

Went to Martinos Seaburn today and cannot believe the ignorant rude customer service that my mam and I experienced. After having a table booked at Santinis at 1230pm but finding out they were closed (due to a burst pipe), we walked into Martinos, we could see it was busy and approached the desk area to the left hand side as...

Went tonight to try Martinos Seaburn, my first visit in a year or so to see if things had changed. Starters were nice enough But don't think for one minute just because you have went to an Italian Restaurant you'll get authentic Italian sauce. My wife ordered penne arrabbiata of which it's understandable that each Italian restaurant will have their... More

45 minutes to be seated, 20 minutes for drinks, 10 minutes between one drink arriving and the next. 25 minutes for our starters to arrive, wrong starter came and needed to be changed, then 15 minutes for the plates to be taken away for our mains! We would've grabbed someone's attention, but all staff were at the other end of... More

Called in on spec to purchase a meal. The menu offered a roast beef dinner at £5.95 and a roast lamb dinner at £6.95. We decided to try the Sunday dinners. The food was plentiful, loads of meat, giant Yorkshire pudding, and five different freshly cooked veg, plus mash, plus roasties. Great food, great value. The waiter service was first... More

I've been here twice, once before Christmas for an evening meal, and once afterwards for a weekend lunch. The first visit was superb - excellent food and service, and the staff bent over backwards with our young son, cooing and playing with him, which he loved. The second visit was less good; we waited for over an hour for our... More
