We ate here last night and had a lovely meal. Cooking your own meat/fish on hot stones was a novelty. Enjoyed the Civhee starter and also the chowder. Between us we had fish, chicken and steak. All were good. Pleasant staff and reasonably priced.

We visited the restaurant this evening and thought we would try the steak , the steak comes on a hot stone plate so you cook to your own liking which was an experience , tasted great friendly staff and good value for money

Enjoyed the opportunity to grill our shrimp and rib eye steak on hot stones at our dinner table. The seasonings were good as were the toppings which included Bernaise sauce among other options. The sides (whipped garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables) were just the right portion size. We ended our meal with the chocolate brownie topped with ice cream.... More

The restaurant has had some effort put into it by the owners, it was nice surroundings and had great music playing. The meat was good so you can't go wrong in cooking it yourself. Nice concept and a bit of a novelty but it's hot work sitting cooking in a warm climate!

We dined tonight st The Elbow Room. What makes this restaurant different is that you cook your own meat or fish on a hot lava stone. Absolutely delicious. My husband and son had the fish and I had the mixed skewer. All were lovely. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

Recently took my children (young adults) here to celebrate. We all enjoyed the experience of cooking our meats and seafood on the hot stones. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, the atmosphere pleasant and it's good value for money.
