I wandered into Jambalaya just for a quick bite - however, 2 hours later and I was sitting back after a great meal, enjoying the lovely cheap drinks and watching the entertainment - I'll certainly visit again next year when I return.

Went once during our holiday. With staying at the Santana hotel we got 15% off our bill. The staff are friendly and attentive. There's lots of choices on the menu. The food was good & the portions were big. There was no entertainment on whilst we visited, but the atmosphere was nice & relaxed.

I visited this bar once. The food was nice but the main thing was, it had great entertainment. Good music and a disco atmosphere with a little dance floor. It was a great night out good fun.

We randomly chose this restaurant one night as they had some live music going on inside and we were glad we did. We ordered the Chicken Seekh Kebabs, Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza, and the Seafood Pasta and all 3 came as described and cooked perfectly. Very reasonable priced as well. There was a dance floor at the back of the... More

We went to this restaurant twice...once for dinner and then for lunch next day... Good maintained restaurant with well behaved staff... For dinner on Sunday, good food with live music kept us occupied... We didn't order wood burn pizza for dinner and unfortunately they don't serve pizzas in lunch :(.. You can try their gelato ice-creams ... Overall very good... More
