Had dinner here once and found the staff very friendly and attentive when getting you into the restaurant but after seating you they just ignored you. On top of the poor service the food was terrible to mediocre. My dinner was mediocre and my wife had a lamb dish that just tasted of salt - horrible.

Food was nice but we waited ages on someone taking our order. Then waited ages on our drinks. Finally we had to go looking for someone to ask for the bill

Found this when looking at car hire a few places up. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable and treat you as friends when you return, still keeping their efficient serving manner. Lovely to sit upstairs on the roof terrace. Menu is varied and has a good choice for all types of eater. Had various dishes over the 3 times... More

We visited here as we had a great meal the previous year, the food was pretty average compared to some of our other meals and we decided not to return during our stay. The waiter was a little cheeky when we were asking to order something however overall the food was ok.

Very friendly welcome. An extensive menu to choose from. There is something for everyone here. All the staff are very friendly and have a welcoming smile at the ready. They do their very best for all their customers. Can't wait to return next year.
