We had a birthday lunch today at Amanda's On The Edge. Our meals were so fresh and delicious. The best steak my husband has had at a restuarant for a long time.Our meal was 10 out of 10. Thankyou Amanda's for a brilliant lunch and service. Dessert creme brule absolutely delicious. Can't wait to visit again.

Originally wanting to seat us at a table in the corner next to the toilet, we were moved because the pram wouldn't fit. After an awkward start we finally got to sit down. We were asked if we wanted... More

We arrived to a reasonable cold reception and we going to be placed at a table where every other customer would walk past. We asked to be re positioned and this was accommodated, from that moment on the service was good, and all courses of a good standard. The one exception is the fact you paid for to bread rolls....

We enjoyed a pleasant Saturday dinner at the Edge. Attentive service and friendly staff make for a lovely ambience. I had a rack of lamb that was prepared perfectly and my partner a chicken curry that was light and fragrant.
