I've been here often, and recently the restaurant has really taken a dip for the worse. I shall no longer visit the establishment. Although the food is great, the waiting time to get served is disgraceful. On one occasion, admittingly at peak time, the food took an hour and half to arrive for our table of 8. Recently, we went...

I refer to an incident I had last Saturday night around 10.45pm at AL POMODORO RESTAURANT in Baystreet which exemplifies what bad service is all about. Having gone there with my girlfriend and 3 year old son for a meal I had an experience which few would ever dream of! After ordering wine, a starter and 2 main courses ,... More

The staff seem like you are doing them a favour! Food was ok, but as I pointed out to the waitress, my tomato, olive and red onion focaccia looked nothing like the vibrant full image they had on the menu!

Good food and service, fair pricing however rather expensive at times when compared to other restaurants... good for visiting with both family and friends, and the decor is nice too, actually quite relaxing with a large wall mosaic portraying a view of Naples if I'm not mistaken... and also a large aquarium on the opposite side, creating a nice atmosphere....

slow service. cold food. uncaring staff. Don't waste your money on this place, there is far better places to eat round and about this area. EG. Waterbiscuit.

First of all let me just say that my overall rating should read 'Good' rather than simply 'Average' but for lack of the option I had to choose the latter rather than 'Very Good'. The place is really sweet, with the motorini for stools on the outside and the yellow-coloured tables on the inside, very reminiscent of an Italian trattoria.... More

The food here is ok, unfortunately the service is less so based on my experience. There were 5 of us for lunch and they managed to not prepare the food for the first person who ordered. It makes lunch an interesting experience when one of the party is sitting with nothing in front of her and then the rest sit... More

Now here is a curious thing: I may be wrong but I think this restaurant is a sister establishment to Fluid steak house next door but the service here is much better than Fluid and the food is consistently good. If you can't make up your mind as you stand outside them both but want a good steak go to... More
