Don't fall for any wine or meal deal here. We sat down outside, encouraged by another table of happy campers. But what? Where shall I start ... the 1980's I think! To be fair this restaurant has a 'Balkan ' influence. Hmm. That's what it says on the menu. That was the time that this end of town was buzzing... More

Booked in advance for after theatre dinner. Greeted well by staff and a very nice table and menus and drinks menus immediately produced. No fuss; just nicely attentive. Since it was 1st of April the staff were happy to share our chuckles of events of the day. Beautiful evening for outdoor eating but our experience was that we preferred indoors... More

Thought we would try the place across the road for a change from our usual Sunday night Italian but what a mistake it was. They try, dont get me wrong but compared to Sorrento they have a long way to go. The service was ok but the food was average and quite expensice for what it was. To harsh? Just... More

We decided to go to this restaurant for lunch the other Sunday and couldn't believe when we arrived that we were the only people there. Another couple turned up in a while but because of the lack of people there was very little atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal but can't say it was memorable in any way. Sorry, but there... More

Had a meal here rather than Sorrento or Oliver’s as we had a discount voucher. Unlikely to revisit as the food is not up to the competition over the street. Clincher was the wine – although a short wine list (perhaps six whites), the first three we chose were not available. Staff friendly, and clearly embarrassed at the wine situation.

Positano has been around for quite a while serving Balkan food. I visited last year and it was so-so. This year I was impressed by the friendly and helpful staff and the quality of the food. Service was fast and the two dishes we had were great. I'd certainly visit again.

8 of us decided to sit here and have a few drinks and some food after attending an event in Northbridge. We simply chose this place because it was easy and there was a large table available outside. We were told that the food would take about 20-30mins, which was about right, as the kitchen was pretty busy at the... More
