The food was excellent. I really like the Pollo penne. The chicken just to my own tastes al dente. The staff too were very helpful and reliable. I must say I was impressed again as always. The rediculous government new closing time of 8pm for bars and restaurants in the country is unnecessary in my opinion and is causing untold damage to the hospitality sector already on its knees.

The staff are very courteous and professional despite being busy on a Saturday night. I was very impressed with their attentiveness and prompt assistance. I also really loved the Pollo Balcone which was tender and very well presented on the plate. Well done all round!

We waited 30 mins before someone took our order. The starter and main dishes came out at the same time. The dessert came before the coffee. The food was good in general. Garlic bread was reheated though and very hard.
Dessert was gorgeous and the latte was perfect! Penne carbonara was very good too, I was offered chicken with it wish I didn’t take it though wasn’t the best! Other than that it was very good!

Rude senior staff member, reminded on many occasions by various staff that they were fully booked (we booked our table and still had to wait a significant time to be seated), staff seemed stressed, maybe more employees needed? Went to the bar after the meal to get a drink and told only residents can drink at the bar. Disappointing experience
