Mediterranean | Matching, Matching

Friends 80th birthday lunch, been going here since Roberta took over, in fact his first customer. The food once received couldn’t be better but the service that day was non existent. Had to ask for them to take our order, then had to ask after 45 minutes why our food hadn’t been delivered. The good point was the manager couldn’t apologise enough and lunch was on the house. Never had a problem before and the point is, they put it right without quibble. Going back next week so hasn’t put us off dining there. More

Modern European | Epping, Epping

It was just perfect, they pay attention to every detail you can taste all the effort the chef makes on each bite . The presentation and aromas were outstanding. I have some special dietary requirements and they made sure everything was good for me. The staff is so friendly ,welcoming and caring. The price is very reasonable for the super high quality dishes you get. The variety of drinks they offer is awesome. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and they made it very special. More
