I booked a table here for me and two friends last night. When we turned up, it took a while for anyone to assist, they didn't even look at us when we came in. When we did eventually get talking to someone, it felt as if we were inconveniencing her - and the restaurant wasn't even full. So we were... More

The first was before going out to explore the city, we enjoyed a couple pints. Service was very good, the pints were perfect, and I even spoke with the manager about the whiskey selection,... More

Have eaten here on many occasions. Service is very spatial!! On arrival you can wait upto 5 mins to be seated as no staff anywhere, even behind the bar!! When served the food is really tasty and service excellent when there is a fluctuation of staff. When you go to pay, there is either 5 staff or none, never an... More

We went for dinner in July and it was so bad. We stood inside the door for 6 or 7 minutes as it said wait to be seated. Eventually I went to the bar to ask if we could sit down somewhere, the place was nearly empty. They put us at a table that was dirty and sticky. I had... More

It's a good place to take friends, have some beers and annoy a nice match. The food is pretty good, although they don't have too many options.

Thank Ricardo J
