We had a 3 course meal as part of db&b offer. At first glance the menu didn't excite me but the food I chose was fantastic. Possibly the best calamari I've ever had. The salmon was cooked to perfection, it was just all extremely tasty....More

I found the menu slightly odd. Very few starters unless you wanted a small pasta. I ordered pasta for main and it came as a starter size. We ordered a second bottle of wine that never arrived. Calamari was under and had to go back....More

Stayed here recently and had the DBB option, the choice for dinner was excellent, the food was well presented and tasty. We went for the chateaubriand and it was one of the best I've ever had. Service was prompt and attentive. Highly recommend.

I visited this restaurant with my mum as we were staying at the hotel for a couple of nights relaxation break. We were seated at the back of the restaurant so we presumed they were going to be very busy. I was facing a brown...More
